What sounds do elephants make?
A roar may be used to intimidate or in the response to aggression. High levels of distress or even happy excitement can produce a roar. Although this roar may seem intimidating, it was the first vocalization expressed during a joyful reunion.
Chirps and Squeaks
Chirps and squeaks are unique to Asian elephants. They may be used to announce news, communicate needs, assemble a group, reassure, and lend support.
Elephants do not sweat through their skin. Flapping their ears, which contain many blood vessels, allow them to regulate their body temperature. Flapping ears are a sign of a relaxed, content elephant.
Asian elephants love the water. They bathe, swim, play, soak, and socialize. In this clip, you can hear air being expelled through the trunk followed by splashing.
An Asian elephant’s typical diet consists mainly of grasses, but they also eat fruit and vegetables. Listen to an elephant bite into a very large cucumber.
