3. Social Lives

Males are usually solitary and move from herd to herd. A female elephant, however, stays in a herd of around 10 elephants with the leader being the one with the most experience. Elephants communicate between herds or other elephants miles away using sounds. These sounds are often too low for human ears to understand. Another way elephants communicate is by the stamping of their huge feet. An elephant herd is said to be one of the most gelled up herds in the animal world.
