Elephant Facts

Elephants are well known for their intelligence and caring for each other. Elephants cry and laugh and they are largest animals that live on land. Elephants live long, between 60-70 years. Elephant’s musk has more than 100,000 muscle units and elephant poops around 80 pounds a day. It is known that elephants take a great care over dead bones of their family members. However, it is the myth that they carry them to secret “elephant burial grounds”. Interesting elephant fact is that periodically male elephants go through musth or extremely aggressive sexual behavior. Musth in Persian means “intoxicated” and it is recorded that male elephant in musth has 60 times higher level of testosterone than in the normal elephant. Elephant male in the musth will kill and destroy everything in his path. Take a look at this shocking vicious video to learn more about this highly aggressive elephant behavior. Again we repeat THIS VIDEO IS VERY AGGRESSIVE!

  1. SERIOUSLY SOMEONE LEAVE A GRAPHIC WARNING FOR THIS VIDEO. EVERYONE THIS VIDEO IS VERY GRAPHIC, UNSUITABLE FOR CHILDREN. THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN MENTIONED IN THE ORIGINAL TEXT

  2. Guys, hello? I believe the warning is already in the text ( the last sentence in the paragraph) The key words: Shocking, vicious, highly agressive behavior…

  3. Okay that is crazy! Not only is that agressive and violent but those elephants are severely underweight. You should NOT be able to thier backbones. No wonder the elephant went on a wild rage it was probably being abused. I feel worse for the elephants than i do for that man. No animal should be treated that way EVER. That is just sick.

  4. Okay it says what its bad in the video so get over it . No ones going to go around killing indians because they saw the video. so shut up and get a life

  5. sure i understand the elephant is aggressive, but really this poor animal looks like it has been treated poorly and it seems to be expresing his feeling. Its probaly like ” I HATE YOU ALL”

  6. Yeh, I agree with Kyleleigh’s comment. Did they not think that cramming hundreds of hysterical people and lots of agrressive, wild, enormous animals together in a small space was heading for distaster?

  7. OMG! That’s insane. Y didn’t they get out of there?! They stayed around watching! GET OUT OF THE WAY! RUNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!

  8. Hello guys!
    Many of you think that the elephants are abused in India.This is NOT true.Elephants are treats as God (which is exactly God Ganesha).And apparently this video is about the intoxicated ‘musth’edness of the elephant.

    And this does not happen all the time, well its like saying WTC was safe all the time.You cant predict anything!

  9. It was mentioned that it was an agressive video TWICE…”Take a look at this shocking vicious video to learn more about this highly aggressive elephant behavior. Again we repeat THIS VIDEO IS VERY AGGRESSIVE!”…..what part of that don’t you understand?

  10. if i was an elephant, i wouldnt want some dirty person’s nut sack on my back either. lol. the guy getting tossed already looked dead from not eating too much. aha

  11. Human nature is well illustrated in this video…
    Did you notice that the man being attacked could have escaped earlier like most others? He tried to help another guy (blue color shirt) who was being targeted. Unfortunately, the elephant turned its attention to him while the blue shirt guy took the chance to run away. Tragic…

  12. Do U Ppl Not Read?! It’s Acting Up Because Of Its Sexual Agressive Behavior! Not Because They Are Treated Badly, or Because Of Ppl On Their Backs!

  13. Elephantsown, man! this is just moar proof. But rly, he did warn us twice that it was graphic, and the animal IS only naturally reacting because of the musth making it agressive.

    PROBLEM IS NOT WITH THE INDIANS……..PROBLEM REMAINS WITH THE MANKIND.BE AWARE OF UR WORDS……

  15. how would you guys feel if people were taking you out of your habitat to ride your back. youd be pissed. just because it is an incredible mammal DOES NOT mean ppl have the right to do this. Alot of humans shouldnt even be living on this earth with such an ignorant mind set. you people piss me off.

    u kno wat u r really rude

  17. Elephants only attack when they feel dangered mabey you guys should read up on your facts, if people wasn’t standing around and left the elephant alone instead of picking up a stick and smacking it then the elephant would have stopped attacking stupid people, elephants are really friendly and riding an elephant is a ritual in different religions/ lifestyles. you wouldn’t understand because your not around them like others are. Elephants are show cases, riding elephants isn’t abuse. Get your facts stright before you go judging ethnic groups.

  18. LOL the elephants just like “Hey ima take u for a ride on my tusk. *carries around* whoops i dropped u. Whered u go? *steps on him* Oh there you are…get back on…why aren’t u moving? *nudges and throws him off the to the side*” poor guy. This is why u don’t take these beautiful giants out of their natural habitats and put **** on their head, then ride them and expect them to go along with it.

    I agreed with the first part of your comment but elephants are not show cases they’re living things, they weren’t created so that people could go around saying “look my elephant has **** on its head it’s so awesome” and if that’s what you think then shame to you.
