Description

On heavy rain days, the river level rises dramatically. Many logs will flow along with the fast current and some logs are stuck against the shore. This intrigue elephants who stay nearby. When elephants see logs, they will explore out of general curiosity. Elephants eat grasses, leaves, roots, fruit, and soft bark. Is it surprising that elephants will also eat hardwoods. Mind you, these logs have been in the water for a long time, and softened by time. The trunk detects the element that might be delicious. Sometimes they will grind the hardwood into smaller pieces with their feet, to release the aroma and prepare it better for digestion at Elephant Nature Park. Elephants are always so remarkably wonderful. Learn More: http://www.saveelephant.org/

  • CharMane Added Exactly PJ . . . I never would have guessed that Elephants eat wood at all, but I suppose it makes sense when it's softened by extended time in water, it becomes pliable. Redwood smells so good too. I can see how they would be able to find it quickly. Personally, yuck.
  • PJ Added It's so amazing to see how these big elephants are being so delicate with their feet and trunks just to get a sliver of wood off to eat and then share it with each other! What a smart and wonderful creature they are. Another one of God's gifts to us! :)
