Grandma Wisdom Rules: Old Female Elephant Protects Herd
From Denny: Women know best. :) And the old ladies really know best. At least that's what researchers discovered when they blasted the roar of a male lion out onto the plain where a herd of elephants were gathered.
The 66 year old female, Joyce, took matters into hand and packed everyone into a tighter group, assuring greater protection for the youngest. Since she is too old to bear any more babies, researchers think that the older elephants pay more attention to group safety.
Well, at least this family group listens to Grandma. Grandma saved the day. Maybe we all need to start listening to more of our own grandmothers. They just might have some long life experience and wisdom to pass along that could keep us safe.
