The headline of this photo could easily be “Family Foraging”. In many cultures, families and friends eat from the same bowl. Elephants, too. Here three generations share the same “pot” on Motorogi Conservancy (http://www.mmconservancy.com/wildlifeconservancy/) in the Maasai Mara, Kenya. We rarely see elephants fight over food, though often one with a particularly tasty morsel will walk quickly off with it to prevent it being taken by another.
We do wonder if the mostly very peaceful way elephants behave when feeding, even if goodies are on the menu, has to do with how elephant babies from day one are trained by the mother and other family members in the art of feeding wherever food and water is available.
