Hi Elephants Eye,

Its quite unlikely that these two baby elephants are twins considering the drought in the Addo area. The prolonged drought means that there is less vegetation and poorer quality vegetation available to elephants and this affects their condition. The elephant population growth rate has decreased and there has been an increase in the number of miscarriages because of the poor condition of the female elephants. For twins to survive more than one or two months after birth usually requires the mother elephant to be in excellent condition with access to enough vegetation and water to produce enough milk for two babies.

These two elephant babies could be just associating and playing together. However, there is a chance they could be twins although this has not been confirmed by our rangers or researchers.

If this elephant is known to be causing problem by aggressive behavior, then the ranger should go and sort out the problem. :hmz:


He is by no means a problem or 'aggressive' compared to Kruger elephants, he's just being a grumpy old bull in musth, rather normal elephant behaviour. I think people are just used to the placid nature of the Addo Elephants and need to be aware that circumstances change behaviour and just have to be a bit more careful when he's around!

Bush Fairy, I fully agree with you. People need to realise that we are in territory assigned to the animals and are fully responsible for our behaviour and safety. I started this thread to share my exciting thrill - not to make it sound as though Paul is nutty and should be shot. He is magnificent and has given me a memory that will last forever. Yes, he was grumpy - I get like that too!
