At first, the mother kic.ked him and then threw him from one corner to the other, forcing the keeper to separate them.
In May of that year, a female elephant gave birth at the Shendiaoshan Wildlife Sanctuary in Rongcheng, China. Metro newspaper reported.
A manager immediately separated the calf from the mother to prevent any further injuries.
They then named the child Zhuang Zhuang. The heartbreaking thing is that Zhuang could not bear to leave her mother despite being at.tacked by her mother. The calf went crazy, and it cried for 5 hours before being comforted,” a staff member said.
“He couldn’t bear breaking up with his mother, and it was his mother who was trying to get rid of him.” The heartbreaking image of the show of casket was heartbroken, tea.rs streaming down his face.
Zhuang was lying under a blanket; however, he couldn’t stop crying. Keepers have watched the child closely, but with time it has improved, keepers said.
On the other hand, they observed that the mother elephant exhibited anorexia. The veterinarian thought it was depressed, which might explain why she did the same to her baby. Regarding her calf crying, the University of California’s Santa Barbara discussed her method of expressing emotions.
The university has provided a detailed explanation of why elephants cry. It states: “The answer to this question depends on how you designate crying.”
“If you suggest that you shed tea.rs or release tea.rs by crying, the answer is definitely yes. Suppose all or nearly all terrestrial mammals release tea.rs to protect and lubricate their eyes, including yours! Because mammals (and you) have eyes that move in their sockets, and your eyes need to be wet to move appropriately, this is important.
Tea.rs help removes dirt or any potentially harmful particles, that get out of your eyes. It is the same with elephants. Suppose you are only going to cry to suggest emotional tea.rs. In that case, the answer to your question is a little more complicated.”
“It can be easily revealed that elephants shed tea.rs. However, it cannot be pointed out that these tea.rs are due to emotions, so we cannot really assert that elephants cry out of feeling. (As for elephant habits, especially when it comes to tea.rs, such as the de.ath of a newborn). ”
According to PBS, elephants are consistently known to exhibit human-like symptoms when it comes to joy and even sadness. Some scientists recommend that these organisms even be able to recall memories and correspond with the de.ad so much attention they have their own principles of a person’s loss.
