Dear MEL Topic Readers,

Teenage elephants need a father figure

Teenagers often have difficulty controlling their aggressive behaviors especially when they are among themselves. Their muscles are developing and their hormones are rising. They sometimes fight or bully others. But when they are with someone stronger or senior, they usually control and adjust their behaviors to fit the society. This is how our society is in order. Such aggressive behavior is also common among teenage elephants. When male elephants are in musth state, a period when testosterone levels go as high as six times than in the same elephant at other times, they become so aggressive that sometimes they stub other male elephants with its trunk to death.

In a national park in South Africa, poor rhinos were victims of adolescent elephants that had not been accompanied by adult male elephants. In short, they were out of control. The solution was very simple. When some adult elephants were brought in, the testosterone levels of the young elephants went down, and they behaved themselves accordingly.

Enjoy reading what learn makes youngsters become gangsters.
