Bossy Elephant Chases Animals Away From Water With Loud Screams

Published November 20, 2019

Rumble / Wild WildlifeDo you consider that elephants are animals capable of possessing a dominant attitude? Watch this video and see how this elephant scares all the animals around it! In some African countries water is very scarce, so many elephants often fight for water, since in many cases water is not enough for everyone. In this case, this elephant tries to get all the animals out of the water, since he considers that he needs more water than they do, so the elephant begins to chase the animals and shouts at them with great force to scare them. This elephant is very brave!

Elephants can adapt to a wide variety of habitats and conditions. They can almost always be seen in African grasslands, although it is not uncommon to see them also in savannas, forests and areas with a nearby water source. At the same time, elephants also like to wallow in the mud or apply a much needed "rain of dust" to mitigate the effect of sunrays and insect bites. The vast majority of African specimens that exist today are in protected parks, although many of them prefer to migrate throughout the year, especially when the destruction of their habitat at the hands of man becomes imminent. As for the Asian elephant, these animals have populations in some Asian tropical forests of China and India.

Elephants are animals of a herbivorous nature, so their diet consists mainly of herbs, tree bark, small shrubs, plants and fruits. In most cases, an adult can eat up to 250 kilograms of food per day. When they are born, young people only receive breast milk, but after two years they supplement their diet with fruits, branches and fallen leaves, small tree barks, etc. Obviously, the large size of these animals and the capacity of their beautiful trunk allows them to reach food in the highest and most inaccessible areas of the trees. In general, an adult specimen envelops the branch or trunk of the tree with its trunk, and violently shakes it so that the fruits fall to the ground and their young feed.

As part of the ecosystem, elephants play an essential role in the balance and maintenance of the environment. For example, when they consume fruits with seeds and travel great distances, they can disperse the seeds in other areas, even up to 60 kilometers from the origin. This is of great importance to enrich the habitat and contribute to the maintenance of other animal species. At the same time, elephant dung acts as a highly effective natural fertilizer for vegetation, providing minerals and nutrients that contribute to soil health and crop development. All animals are important to conserve the environment and the ecosystem!For some species, the dung of these animals is an important source of food, and even for some insects and frogs it represents a small ecosystem to develop. Elephants are also excellent water trackers, since they can travel great distances in search of this liquid and, with it, help other species, including humans. Elephants are fantastic animals!
