Elephant feet are full of Pacinian corpuscles, a type of mechanoreceptor cells, which is what is believed to allow them to detect seismic vibrations.

La forma del pie de un elefante no es perfectamente redonda y sus pies delanteros y traseros son un poco diferentes, lo que permite conocer la dirección en la que está viajando al observar sus huellas.

Happy #EleFunFactFriday! The shape of an elephant’s foot is not perfectly round and their front and back feet are shaped differently, allowing you to tell which direction they are traveling by looking at their footprints.

Feliz #EleFunFactFriday! Mientras que los humanos (y muchos mamíferos) caminan en la planta de sus pies, a lo que se le conoce como locomoción plantígrada, los elefantes tienen un cojín de grasa debajo de sus plantas lo que los convierte en digitígrados; ¡si ...

Una manera en que los elefantes evalúan sus alrededores es a través de “periscopiar”, que es cuando elevan sus trompas y las mueven alrededor usando su habilidad olfativa para valorar que hay a la redonda. @AfricamSafari

Happy #EleFunFactFriday!

One way elephants gauge their surroundings is through “periscoping”, or elevating and shifting their trunks to use their olfactory ability to assess their environs.

#EleFunFactFriday! Their love of mud is one of the reasons elephants are considered ecosystem engineers; the areas in which they & other animals roll & coat themselves in the mud are called wallows which create areas that more easily fill with water and can become watering holes

A pesar de que pueden cambiar con el tiempo, los científicos utilizan los cortes, muescas y marcas en la oreja de un elefante para identificarlos individualmente

Happy #EleFunFactFriday!

Although they can change over time, tears, nicks, and marks on an elephant’s ears are used by researchers to identify individual animals.

Las venas en las orejas de un elefante son tan únicas como las huellas digitales y pueden ser utilizadas para identificarlos.

The veins on an elephant’s ears are as unique as fingerprints and can be used for identification.

Las orejas de los elefantes son importantes para la comunicación. Por ejemplo, las orejas desplegadas pueden ser una señal para sus depredadores o potenciales rivales.

Happy #EleFunFactFriday!

Elephant ears are important for communication. For instance, flaring ears can be a warning to predators or potential elephant rivals.

Las orejas de los elefantes están llenas de vasos sanguíneos cerca de la piel que los ayudan a enfriarse.

Elephant ears are inundated with blood vessels close to the skin to help with cooling.

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

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

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
