Do you know #elephant family is all women group. Made of #mother, #aunts, #grandmother & all other #ladies. Most of the times Male leave herd early. Kids are looked by all female elephants in herd not only mother. Most experienced female makes all decision for family. #WomensDay
The male usually leave at the age of 12-15 years. Then keep joining & leaving herd, same or another temporarily. A kid is raised by all females. They raise them and impart all the accumulative wisdom, since an elephant has long lifespan they do have acquired wisdom.
This joining of another herd by a male is not that easy. The existing male (temporary) tries to resist. Some incidents led to fights also, which goes for days. Some such fights are fatal for one. Result of one such, where this was trying to join a herd. Was killed in infighting.
While things will keep going. The mother, aunts & grandmother take care of the herd. The grandmother keep leading family in journey called as life. Providing them way & wisdom.
