When you think of baby tantrums, cuteness doesn’t usually come to mind. They may be distressed or just upset that someone is making them eat the paste. When it comes to critter tantrums, it’s pretty much the cutest thing in the world!
A tourist caught a cute little statue twitching near a dirt road. While we don’t know what caused the outbreak, we’re glad someone is recording! Elephant calves are commonly known as calves. They are about 3 feet tall at birth and weigh up to 250 pounds. Although calves initially have poor eyesight, they can recognize their mothers by touch, smell and sound.
Young elephants start learning how to use their noses to eat and drink when they are 6 to 8 months old. By one year of age, they have fairly adept control of their noses and, like full-grown elephants, use them for grasping, feeding, drinking, and cleaning. Male elephants start to live alone around the age of 12 to 14, while female elephants live with the herd for life.
Comments under the precious video mentioned that they don’t think the young man lost his temper at all. In fact, they think they enjoy scratching themselves and playing near gravel paths. Who knows; either way, it’s cute!
Young elephants are often observed imitating their elders. This is how they develop and help enhance their own personalities. Plus, they’re pretty naughty and won’t think twice about charging the car.
Today, guests often find this humorous, and guides enjoy it, as they always keep a safe distance as they lead visitors up close to the animals. An expert familiar with animal behavior can distinguish between interesting behavior and behavior caused by stress or threat.
Young elephants are often observed to behave strangely, such as sticking their trunks into the mouths of older relatives. Eats the droppings of other elephants and tries to pick up objects. Now, most of this might sound weird, but there’s a reason for everything. Baby elephants still need to learn how to navigate the bush. These are all influencing factors.
People often think of play as fun rather than learning important life skills like hunting, mating, and avoiding predators. While entertaining for all involved and bystanders alike, the act of play emerges as a ritualized version of the survival skills needed later in life, providing opportunities to hone these abilities.
Play provides a safe space for animals to try novel actions without fear of negative repercussions. Because of the unwritten rules of having a tantrum like this little one, they can explore all sorts of possibilities.

I am broadly interested in how human activities influence the ability of wildlife to persist in the modified environments that we create.
Specifically, my research investigates how the configuration and composition of landscapes influence the movement and population dynamics of forest birds. Both natural and human-derived fragmenting of habitat can influence where birds settle, how they access the resources they need to survive and reproduce, and these factors in turn affect population demographics. Most recently, I have been studying the ability of individuals to move through and utilize forested areas which have been modified through timber harvest as they seek out resources for the breeding and postfledging phases. As well I am working in collaboration with Parks Canada scientists to examine in the influence of high density moose populations on forest bird communities in Gros Morne National Park. Many of my projects are conducted in collaboration or consultation with representatives of industry and government agencies, seeking to improve the management and sustainability of natural resource extraction.
