About the Author: BBC Earth


  1. The poachers aren't the only enemy. Thousands of backwards people in India keep elephants in their back yards like junkyard dogs, living in squalor, chained to stumps for 20, 30, 50 years, cruelly "trained" with bull hooks and isolation decades, unable to move except when taken to city to beg or do tricks on the streets and give rides even when its breaking their backs and their spirits. They think they "own" them. Thousands more are chained and abused only to brought out to temple festivals. Dressed in heavy garb, ridden when legs are broken and hips have arthritis. Its inhumane and happening all over India especially in Kerala. They are abused and tortured every day with steel spikes digging into their legs.

  2. I wouldn't mind seeing experiments like these with elephant's of different evolutions to see how well they can communicate with other elephant races ??

  3. The next question to answer is… can one elephant transfer this knowledge to 2 other elephants who are not familiar with the test.
