How a baby elephant sometimes becomes the king of the herd?


Picture of a baby elephant.

Elephants are the first land mammals found that keep in touch with one another by infra-sound.

In a elephant group, an old female elephant gives the orders.

Her sisters and daughters listen respectfully to this matriarch.

But baby elephants sometimes turn a deaf ear to any call, infrasonic or otherwise.

Even when the herd is on the move, if a baby elephant wants to take a nap, the whole family stops and waits until the infant wakes up before moving.
