On a hot day in the African savannah, a group of elephants searches for food. Scientists have realized that elephants even receive messages by generating use of their sensitive feet to feel vibrations within the ground. Threatened by habitat loss and illegally hunted for their ivory tusks, elephants are on the brink of extinction."Biologists have determined that elephants use a complex system of communication of a minimum of ten distinct sounds, combined in many variations. Researchers are now asking: what do these sounds mean? Will understanding elephant talk be the critical to saving the species? But the elephant's time as a wild animal is operating out. Whilst foraging they usually lose sight of a single but another. All of these discoveries are helping elephant researchers better understand elephant behavior. This coordinated movement--and others like it--has puzzled scientists and caused them to question how elephants communicate with each other. Since the 1990s, scientists have gathered significant information on elephant"talk. Yet at the end of the day, in 1 coordinated movement, the elephants suddenly regroup. As scientists study the elephant sounds that humans can hear, they are also identifying techniques elephants communicate through nonverbal behaviors and making sounds too low for human ears.
