Elephants are gregarious and herd sizes vary from a handful up to several dozen African Herds and are usually led by a senior female and include other females, bulls, and immature Elephants. Bulls that have been driven from the herd may live alone or with bachelor herds.
Their hearing isn't very good and it is thought the large size of their ears is useful in fanning itself. Their eyesight suffers, too, but the trunk is a remarkably sensitive tool enabling them to pick up scents of food and danger from the ground and the air.
What's grey, yellow, grey, yellow, grey, yellow, grey, yellow, grey, yellow, grey, yellow?
