What is “the master call”? Why is it the most important signal for an elephant to learn?
The master call is a strange hissing, howling sound, as if a snake and a tiger were fighting each other which is to be made. It takes around five years to learn the master call.
It is the most important signal for an elephant to learn because it helps the elephant reach out to you when you are in trouble. If, say, you are lost in a jungle and you can’t find your way out, a master call makes the elephant pull down the trees in front of him which scares the other animals and they start running here and there so you know where not to proceed. Slowly, the elephant brings down all the trees and paves a way for you straight to your home.
