The Elephant's Secret Sense - C O'Connell

Unread postby Kaapsedraai » Mon Dec 01, 2014 8:28 am

I stumbled across this book: 'The Elephant's Secret Sense - the hidden life of the wild herds of Africa' written by Caitlin O'Connell.

ISBN-13:978-0-7432-8441-7 or ISBN-10: 0-7432-8441-7

Seems it is about research done on how the elephants communicate using their feet and toe nails, amongst other ways - this is what I picked up from just covered the first 3 pages. Looks like an interesting read, especially when observing elephants and understanding their behaviour and communication process for next visit to Kruger or ADDO. :D

It seems this to be the first post of this book on the Bookshelf as I checked the index. Moderator, please merge if a thread already exists on this book.

Anyone perhaps that had read the book? :hmz:

Thanks Kaapsedraai, I have not read this book but it sounds just what I would enjoy for our forthcoming trip.

I am going to Exclusive Books this morning, funnily enough and will see if they have it, or can get for me.

Hi Yoda, I noticed Amazon are selling the paperback copy, a nice stocking filler. Looks like a good read.
