Wild Sri Lankan Elephants retreat from sound of Asian honey bees
For the first time, researchers have shown that Asian elephants in Sri Lanka are scared of honey bees, much like their African counterparts. Playbacks have been used for many years to explore the behavioural responses of African elephants to a suspected natural threat. However, the research published in Current Biology, is the first time this technique has been used to record how Asian elephants react to the sound of bees.
