Langur monkeys and chital deer have a symbiotic relationship. The monkeys drop leaves from the trees for the deer to eat and can see danger from their perches in the trees and warn the deer. The deer have excellent hearing and can also let the monkeys know about pending danger.
The Indian elephant (Elephas maximus indicus) is a little smaller in size than African elephants. It also has a bit smaller ears. All elephants, though, are social creatures, like us humans. They don’t like being alone, without their herd. Elephant babies can nurse from any mother in their herd. Lone elephants are rogue and angry outcasts
