Elephant Sound

NPR's John Nielsen reports that when elephants stamp their feet they are actually talking, or at least sending seismic messages to other elephants. These signals actually are important to a herd, and human activities that interrupt transmission of signals through the ground could disrupt elephant behavior, migration and the like.
