Baby & I…

  

Dear Friends…

It’s exactly one year since I started my blog  

Living with a damaged skull

I started with my first post.”unconditional love” .(.https://sriramjanak.wordpress.com/2012/05/24/babys-day-out/)..about elephants babies…

And I thought It would be appropriate to  celebrate this I st anniversary  with another post about them …

 My thanks to all my blogger friends who have supported me through out…..taken time to be here with me and also  like /comment on my posts..

The past one year has been a great learning experience  for me and I also did damage my skull ( literally  ).. 🙂 .which I hope makes me better in the coming years… :-).

This post is for you my friends…

 

Take care

Sriram Janak

Makhna in musth…

 

 

MUSTH…

 

” excitement , swiftness, odour, love, passion,

complete florescence of the body, wrath , prowess ,

and fearlessness are declared

to the  eight excellences of musth ”

 

~~~ matangalila

Nilakantha

 

 

Makhnas…..are

 

tuskless male elephants….

 

 

 

 

 

During musth the temporal gland

 

of the male swells and secretes a fluid….

 

During this period the males seek out and mate with cows.

 

Musth is sometimes described as

 

” an instinctive desire in the male elephants to fight and even kill, before mating ”

 

 

 

 

 

They are generally

 

big fellows with powerful trunks….

 

 

 

 

A big makhna is generally feared

 

by the members of any herd….

 

 

 

 

They seem to make up in size

 

of body & trunk for the lack of tusks &

 

are generally enormously powerful elephants….

 

 

 

 

It has been recorded that in the case

 

of a fight between a good sized tusker & a makhna…

 

the makhna snapped off one of the tusks of its

 

opponent with its trunk…

 

 

 

 

many males in musth also have a continual discharge or

 

dribble of urine , with damp patches on their hind legs…..
