Elephants can’t speak, but they can “talk”

In the cartoon, Dumbo displays advanced language skills. In the live-action film, he communicates largely through doe-eyed expressions. Elephants prefer a more low key – more accurately, a low frequency – approach.

Indu, Reba and Sheena rumble, groan and trumpet, but most of their communication is done through vocalizations that are far too low frequency for us to hear. Those sound waves travel through the ground and are picked up by elephants’ very sensitive feet. Such seismic spiels can be sensed miles away.
