I just returned from a short trip to Kenya which is, of course, famous for its abundance of wildlive. In the National Park Masai Mara we encountered a herd of elephants that just appeared in a bush and slowly approached our car while they peacefully grazed and ate. There was a very small baby elephant with the herd – according to our guide not more than 2 or 3 days old – and it is known that elephants can react aggressive when they feel disturbed with their offspring. That’s why there lays a certain kind of tension over this recording of the grazing elephants, one of the bulls finally just stood aside of our car only a meter away and even our guide got a bit nervous… Check the baby elephant trying to suck milk from the mother sometime later in the recording. There is also a growl sound which I suppose comes from one of the elephants but it actually sounds like a lion, so I have to check whether this is part of the acoustic repertoire of elephants or not. As you know they do infrasonic noises to communicate but that is something I leave to the bioacousticians to record…https://silentlistening.files.wordpress.com/2008/10/elephants-grazing.mp3″
