Is there any way, of letting an Elephant know your intentions?

How do Zookeepers communicate with them? Any Elephant whisperer/expert/other person, who can tell me?

  • Yes.

    Verbal commands.

    Hand signals and body language.

    A training reinforcer such as a clicker.

    There are other training methods, some of which may be illegal where you live. Use of a bullhook is illegal where I live (Los Angeles).

  • Elephants are awful smart animals, doesn’t take long for them to know their keeper/handlers intentions.

    Wild elephants are not to sure what to make of humans so don’t make it obvious you might be a threat.

  • They can be trained. In fact, they are smarter than dogs.
