|Eye of Elephant|
normally inactive full noon on a sunny day. and they are observing to act in actively the early morning and evening. As expected, we found different species of the animal during our safari.
We sighted birds, deer, rhinos, elephants, and buffalos. We encountered an elephant herd in the Latajhar area. Neel was so excited to locate the elephant herd. He loves to see small elephant claves playing with older ones. We stopped our jeep on a safe distance and enjoy the behavior of the elephant herd. I request Neel not to make noise as the elephant able to detect very-low-frequency noise. The elephant herd was enjoying their own. They did not even bother about our presence.
Neel whispered in my ear and asking questions one after another. I told him that the number of elephant herds varies depending on different situations. These numbers vary from 4-5 individuals to 50-70 individuals or more. They are herbivores and eat a variety of plant leaves, bark, root, fruit, flower. An adult elephant needs 120-150kg of food and an average of 200 liters of water.
The elephant also indicator species of a particular habitat. They are also called natural habitat engineers. The elephant herds are matriarchal in nature. The male elephant left the elephant herds after attaining maturity.
Elephants love to eat elephant apple which is common in all elephant habitats. I told Neel that the elephant is a very wise animal. It is known as the 'Heritage Animal' of our country. We must care about the habitat of elephants. Instead of this, we will lose this animal from our earth.
