Topic: Male elephants are not loners after all.
Summary: Male elephants were thought to be loners - creatures that are often alone. However, a new study shows that young males are not always loners. Younger male elephants were seen following older males as they traveled from place to place. The study was published recently in Scientific Reports. Researchers studied videos of 1,264 sightings of male African elephants. The elephants were traveling toward Botswana’s Boteti River in 2017 and 2018. They found that younger males rarely traveled alone. Older males most often led groups of mixed ages. Diana Reiss is the director of the Animal Behavior and Conservation Program at Hunter College. Reiss was not involved in the new study. However, she says,“Mature male elephants often take a position at the front of the line when they are leading the group,”. Reiss added, “In human societies, grandparents are valued because they make really important contributions — helping with childcare and passing down knowledge gained over decades...We’re now learning this pattern is also true for some other long-lived mammals, including dolphins, whales and elephants.” This is the first study of African savannah elephants of its kind. A 2019 paper also used cameras to find similar male group actions among Asian elephants.
