DISCOVER ELEPHANT - COULD YOU? In the image below an elephant is hiding somewhere in the forest. you would like to discover it? The poachers in forests of Africa & in other continents hunt for elephants mainly for the ivory. There huge novels written about smuggling of elephant related items from the heart of African continent to other nations. Recently in Tamil Nadu near Madurai lots of elephants invaded a place which was carved out of forest lands. It was a task for the officials to drive the out to their habitat that took over few days. In Tamil there is a saying that an elephant alive or dead is as good as possessing one thousand Sovereign Gold. Veterinary doctors invariably accompany forest officials tasked with trapping ailing animals to nurse them back to their normal life. In an episode of “kowhun bhanega crorpathi” a veterinary doctor participant was explaining to query of Amithab about elephant body temperature, palpitation, heart beat and delivery of baby elephant. That was the time I came to know that a pregnant elephants have the longest gestation period of all mammals. These gentle giants' pregnancies last for more than a year and a half. The average gestation period of an elephant is about 640 to 660 days, or roughly 95 weeks. When a person known for his or her strong memory, s/he said to possess “elephant memory”.
