African elephants (shown here in Amboseli National Park) can send long-distance, low-frequency messages that depend on vocal mechanisms that are more like people singing than like cats purring.

How the elephant gets its infrasound. Blowing air through a pachyderm’s larynx offers hints to low-frequency communication

2012-08-03 - Vienna, Austria

Elephants don€t purr so much as sing when they unleash low-frequency rumblings at friends and foes kilometers away. Too low for humans to hear, the infrasonic components of elephants€ calls have at times been attributed to a process similar to a cat€s contented thrum. But new measurements made by blowing air through the voice box, or larynx, of a deceased zoo elephant suggest that the mechanism is actually a (much bigger) analog to a person speaking or singing.

Tusker Packs Trunk

2010-08-09 - Vienna, Austria

This tinky tusker has caused big trouble for zoo bosses in Austria - where his five year old big brother has been forced to pack his trunk to make way for him. The five week old male African elephant - as yet unnamed by keepers - was expected to be a girl and join the herd at Vienna´s Schoenbrunn Zoo. But because he´s a boy, his big brother Kibo - born to the same mum Numbi five years ago - has to be sent to another zoo to avoid causing conflict in the colony.
