Silent Thunder: The Hidden Voice Of Elephants Summary


The scientist who observed elephants for 10 years reveals how they communicate. Kate Payne spent a decadewith her husband observing sperm whales but after her separation from her husband she turned to the elephant , the largest land animal. The elephant's social hierarchy, mating habits and relationships have often been observed and written about, but what is the explanation behind the sensitive awareness showed by elephants within their own particluar tribes? Kate Payne tells how on one occasion a group of elephants she was observing appeared restless. They looked around them, as if searching for someone missing. in the horizon an elephant approached, arrioved and they all went off to the water hole together. Her book became a study of elephant life generally. What began as idle curiosity in American zoos became an obsession in the African veld. There she saw at 1st hand, elephants at ease, elephants fighting each other and elephants being hunted.
