#Did you know this
Elephants mature later than many other animals. Females reach sexual maturity at 10 to 12 years of age, males at around 25.
A male doesn’t generally start breeding until age 30 when it has reached a sufficient weight & size to compete with other breeding males. Males stay with the family until they reach 12 to 15 years of age when they leave the herd & live alone or join up with other bulls. Male & female elephants live separately with bulls only visiting when some of the females are in their mating season, known as estrus. At that point, the male will start to seek out females in Estrus.
Each herd has one female that is the matriarch. She dictates where the herd goes & helps to teach the younger elephants proper behavior.
Female elephants live in multigenerational family groups with other females.
