        Forest Elephants

        In this video segment from Nature, Martyn Colbeck, an award-winning cinematographer, describes filming the tropical rainforest elephants of the Congo. When Colbeck finds the elephants, he describes them as creating a party atmosphere. The elephants show that they care for and protect each other in the ways they play and share food, water and minerals. There are signs of competition among the elephants, also. Colbeck is disappointed he won't have the opportunity to know more about this elephant family. For more about elephants see "Desert Elephants" and "Grassland Elephants," two of three video segments in the series.
