A Happy Elephant Trumpeting hand painted
Elephants like this African elephant make trumpeting sounds when they are excited, fearful or happy. Elephants trumpet when they are highly stimulated. While most vocalizations are made with the larynx, a trumpet is produced by pushing air through the trunk. Trumpeting elephants may be excited, lost, angry, playful or surprised. Rumbles are particularly interesting. Low frequency rumbles can be used to communicate over long distances. They can also be used when greeting, bonding, threatening, soliciting a mate, soothing or giving reassurance. A roar may be used to intimidate or in the response to aggression. High levels of distress or even happy excitement can produce a roar. Chirps and squeaks are unique to Asian elephants. They may be used to announce news, communicate needs, assemble a group, reassure and lend support. Inspired by nature, African wildlife.
