Description: African elephants show sexual dimorphism in weight and shoulder height by age 20, due to the rapid early growth of males; by age 25, males are double the weight of females. However, both sexes continue to grow throughout their lives.Female African elephants are able to start reproducing at around 10 to 12 years of age, and are in estrus for about 2 to 7 days. They do not mate at a specific time; however, they are less likely to reproduce in times of drought than when water is plentiful. The gestation period of an elephant is 22 months and fertile females usually give birth every 3 – 6 years, so if they live to around 50 years of age, they may produce 7 offspring. Females are a scarce and mobile resource for the males so there is intense competition to gain access to estrous females.Post sexual maturity, males begin to experience musth, a physical and behavioral condition that is characterized by elevated testosterone, aggression and more sexual activity. Musth also serves a purpose of calling attention to the females that they are of good quality, and it cannot be mimicked as certain calls or noises may be.Watch Elephant Nature playing out at a waterhole in Kruger National Parkhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/African_elephant

Musth or must is a periodic condition in bull (male) elephants, characterized by highly aggressive behavior and accompanied by a large rise in reproductive hormones. Testosterone levels in an elephant in musth can be as much as 60 times greater than in the same elephant at other times. However, whether this hormonal surge is the sole cause of musth, or merely a contributing factor, is unknown. Scientific investigation of musth is problematic because even the most placid elephants become highly violent toward humans and other elephants during musth.

Enjoy this footage: Probably half of these rhinos in this video might have been poached by now? In just a decade, more than 7,137 African rhinos have been lost to poaching. A staggering 1,054 rhinos killed in South Africa alone during 2016, works out nearly three rhinos being killed every day.

この子たちは、多摩動物公園のスリランカゾウのアマラちゃんとヴィドゥラくんです。 アマラちゃんとヴィドゥラくんはめっちゃ仲良しで、ちょくちょく交尾してるです。 この子たちの運動場は今は狭いけど、新しく広い運動場が今作られてるところです。 They are Amara♀ and Vidura♂ the Sri Lankan Elephant in Tama Zoological Park. They are very close, and they often are mating. Their enclosure is very small. Now their new large enclosure is under construction.

Penguins need your help! Visit www.PenguinsInternational.org to donate. This King penguin pair is deep in the midst of courtship behavior at the start of the breeding season. They rely on posturing and visual cues - as do many birds - to find a mate and begin when the female is ready. Not only do these birds utilize posturing, but also chattering with their bills as part of the courtship. Clearly, in the video, the female is not ready yet, but most likely will be within the nest day or two. These theories are based on several weeks spent observing and recording the behavior of both Gentoo penguins and King penguins throughout the Falkland Islands. This video was taken at the Volunteer Point King Penguin rookery. Footage compiled in conjunction with work for the NGO, Falklands Conservation.
