Meanwhile, Caitlin O’Connell-Rodwell, originally an insect biologist, got involved when the Namibian government hired her to attack the perennial problem of keeping elephants from raiding crops. Tigers have striped skin not just striped fur. Was the mother acting out of love in defending her child (even though it was misguided), or was this simply a biological imperative to protect one’s genes?

This change in the dietary supply was one of the factors which forced gomphotheres toward extinction in the late Pleistocene in South America. [7] The remaining population probably succumbed to climatic change and/or human predation around the time of the Holocene margin.
