Happy #EleFunFactFriday!

Elephant ears are made of cartilage and can be broken, just like human noses.

Feliz #EleFunFactFriday!Los elefantes africanos en musth usan retumbos de musth de baja frecuencia para comunicarse a largas distancias.Todavía no se han identificado vocalizaciones análogas en los elefantes asiáticos.
@AfricamSafari #FelizFinde #sabiasque @chaseladue

Happy #EleFunFactFriday!African elephants in musth use low-frequency musth rumbles to communicate over long distances.Analogous vocalizations have not yet been definitively identified in Asian elephants #FunFactFriday #EleFunFact #FridayFeeling #EleFactFriday @chaseladue

Happy #EleFunFactFriday! Many crop-raiding incidents involve male elephants, especially during musth. Musth is thought to be metabolically stressful, so these males may be turning to nutritionally rich crops as a food source #FunFactFriday #EleFunFact #FridayFeeling @chaseladue

#EleFunFactFriday!Alrededor de la pubertad, los elefantes asiáticos machos pasan por un periodo llamado “moda musth”.Durante dicho periodo los machos excretan secreciones que huelen como miel, en contraste a los olores acre exudados durante el [email protected] @chaseladue

Happy #EleFunFactFriday! Around puberty, male Asian elephants go through a period called “moda musth.” During moda musth, males exude secretions that smell like honey, in contrast to the pungent odors exuded during full musth #FunFactFriday #EleFunFact #EleFactFriday @chaseladue

Feliz #EleFunFactFriday!Los elefantes asiáticos machos usan una feromona llamada frontalin para comunicar el musth.El mismo compuesto químico es usado por los escarabajos de corteza como una feromona de agregación.Éste es un caso de evolución convergente

Happy #EleFunFactFriday!Male Asian elephants use a pheromone called frontalin to communicate musth. The same chemical compound is used as an aggregation pheromone in bark beetles. This is a case of convergent evolution#elephants #elefante #FunFactFriday #EleFactFriday @chaseladue

Feliz #EleFunFactFriday!Durante el musth los elefantes machos producen continuamente señales químicas. Éstas señales son emitidas a través de secreciones de la glándula temporal, goteo de orina e inclusive por su aliento y heces

Happy #EleFunFactFriday!Male elephants continuously produce chemical signals during musth. These signals are emitted through temporal gland secretions, urine dribbling, and even through their breath and dung #FunFactFriday #EleFunFact #FridayFeeling #EleFactFriday @chaseladue

Feliz #EleFunFactFriday!El musth es comunicado simultáneamente por diferentes canales sensoriales, ya que involucra componentes visuales, auditivos y olfatorios. Se piensa que esta redundancia asegura que la señal del musth sea propagada adecuadamente
@AfricamSafari @chaseladue

Happy #EleFunFactFriday! Musth is communicated through several different sensory channels simultaneously, as it involves visual, auditory, and olfactory components. It’s thought that this redundancy helps ensure the musth signal is accurately propagated #FunFactFriday @chaseladue

Feliz #EleFunFactFriday!El musth sirve como una señal para resolver la jerarquía de dominancia en los elefantes machos. Incluso elefantes más jóvenes en musth a menudo vencen a elefenates más viejos y grandes por el acceso a las hembras @AfricamSafari #sabiasque @chaseladue

Happy #EleFunFactFriday!Musth serves as a signal to resolve dominance hierarchies between male elephants. Even younger elephants in musth often outcompete older, larger elephants for access to females
#elephants #elefante #FunFactFriday #EleFunFact #EleFactFriday @chaseladue

Feliz #EleFunFactFriday! Se piensa que el musth evolucionó como una señal que sirve para sincronizar la reproducción entre elefantes machos y hembras. Típicamente, sólo se ha observado a los machos en musth asociarse con los grupos de hembras @AfricamSafari @chaseladue

Happy #EleFunFactFriday! Musth is thought to have evolved as a signal that serves to synchronize reproduction between male and female elephants. Typically, only musth males are observed to associate with female groups.
#FunFactFriday #EleFunFact #EleFactFriday @chaseladue

Feliz #EleFunFactFriday! Hasta los 1970’s, se pensaba que el musth era un fenómeno único a los elefantes asiáticos. Sin embargo, desde entonces la mayoría de los estudios en musth han sido enfocados en los elefantes africanos @AfricamSafari #FelizFinde #EleFactFriday @chaseladue

Happy #EleFunFactFriday! Until the 1970s, musth was thought to be a phenomenon unique to Asian elephants. However, since then most scientific research on musth has been focused on African elephants
#elephants #FunFactFriday #EleFunFact #FridayFeeling #EleFactFriday @chaseladue

Feliz #EleFunFactFriday!El musth fue descrito en los elefantes asiáticos en tiempos ancestrales. El término “musth” proviene de una palabra urdu que significa “intoxicado”, probablemente porque los elefantes en musth pueden ser más agresivos @AfricamSafari #FelizFinde @chaseladue

Happy #EleFunFactFriday! Musth was first described among Asian elephants during ancient times. The term “musth” comes from an Urdu word meaning “intoxicated,” presumably because male elephants in musth can be more aggressive #FunFactFriday #EleFunFact #EleFactFriday @chaseladue

Feliz #EleFunFactFriday!El fenómeno de musth es completamente único a los elefantes. No se sabe de ningún otro mamífero que presente este tipo de periodo reproductivo que es tanto asíncrono como perió[email protected] #FelizFinde #Animales #sabiasque #EleFactFriday @chaseladue

Happy #EleFunFactFriday!The phenomenon of musth is completely unique to elephants. No other mammal is known to exhibit this sort of male reproductive period that is both asynchronous and regularly occurring. #elephants #FunFactFriday #EleFunFact #EleFactFriday @chaseladue
