Tharindu Muthukumarana

This paper speaks about the uniqueness on African baby elephant’s mock charge towards tourists’ vehicles. The particular behavior is recognized to be much frequent in African infants or juveniles compared to Asian counterparts. Following research had been composed by observation of Youtube footages uploaded by various individuals. Corresponding to that, there seems to be a high tendency, particularly in the Southern African baby elephants. The aforesaid behavior is just a linkage of the playing behavior of young elephants. The hypothesis proposition suggests that this can be a result of anthropogenic disturbance due to the conspicuous amount of culling and translocation.
