Pocha and Guillermina are some of the chattiest elephants we’ve ever known – but Pocha currently holds the title of loudest trumpeting elephant we’ve ever crossed paths with. In fact, she’s so loud that if you’re standing near her and she trumpets when you aren’t expecting it, you can get truly startled.
While it’s extraordinarily loud to us, for Pocha, it’s her regular-old everyday trumpet. Just another thing that makes her unique among our growing herd of elephants.
We were trying to catch her trumpets on video during night feed, but since she’s an elephant, the first time we pulled out the camera she got quiet. The second time she obliged, although not quite as loud as usual. At the end, we are laughing because Guille was scratching her face on her mom’s face. ☺️
