Walking around the Grant Museum, you may notice that these preparations have a crucial flaw: the specimens lose their colour and, to some extent, their shape. endobj endobj <>/Font<>/ProcSet[/PDF/Text]>>/Rotate 0/Thumb 70 0 R/Type/Page>> <> Thanks! How, then, to measure an elephant’s heart rate? 111 0 obj Elephant Heart - The Digital (Steve Aoki Remix) - Duration: 3:06. I leave you with this piece of 1936 advice to researchers: “Circus elephants are most easily handled, they are cooperative, their trainers are highly skilled men thoroughly en rapport with the animals, and one can speak only in the warmest terms of appreciation of the cooperation given by the proprietors and trainers of the three herds with which we were privileged to work … For the most part little success can be obtained by working with zoological park elephants, but as these larger circus herds, when on tour, remain for days, if not weeks, in or near our large research centers, scientists interested in heart rate studies should certainly find ample opportunity for most illuminating investigations.”[2], Lisa Randisi is a Visitor Services Assistant at UCL Culture.

When the elephants were lying, the rates were higher, occasionally only one or two beats higher, but usually from 8 to 10 beats higher. In March 2014, heart rates (HR) were recorded with a Polar RS800CX HR monitor while behavioral observations were obtained on 7 Asian elephants (4 adult female, 1 adult male, and 2 juvenile male domesticated elephants) at the Elephant Conservation Center in Xayaboury, Lao Popular Democratic Republic (PDR). 124 0 obj <>/Font<>/ProcSet[/PDF/Text]>>/Rotate 0/Thumb 68 0 R/Type/Page>> endobj <>stream <> A plastic replica made for teaching, perhaps.

Heart rates of northern elephant seals diving at sea and during apnoea on land were monitored to test whether a cardiac response to submergence is an important factor in their ability to make repetitive, long-duration dives. <>/Font<>/ProcSet[/PDF/Text]>>/Rotate 0/Thumb 84 0 R/Type/Page>> The Heart Rate of the Elephant, Francis G.

Researchers in the 1930s – the first to attempt it – believed that an artery behind their ears would allow them to take the elephants’ pulse; alas they were never able to locate it. 106 0 obj Seven juvenile northern elephant seals were captured at Año Nuevo, CA, instrumented and translocated to release sites around Monterey Bay. <> endobj When the elephants were standing quietly under ordinary conditions of feeding, the rates averaged 30 beats per minute. <> <> 33 0 obj Under a large glass bell near the flying lemur (which is neither a lemur nor can fly, but that’s a story for another time) lies a specimen that, for sheer size and improbability, I’d always assumed to be a fake. endobj 65 0 obj <> <>/Font<>/ProcSet[/PDF/Text]>>/Rotate 0/Thumb 76 0 R/Type/Page>> endobj In comparison, an adult human heart only weighs around 310 grams, and is the size of a clenched fist. 115 0 obj Assignment Asia: Elephants of Kerala - Duration: 15:15. endobj

The elephant is unique in that its heart rate actually speeds up when it is lying down – a fact that stumped early researchers. Most animals’ hearts slow down when they rest or sleep. 2020-11-05T07:30:56-08:00
