Setting up an African Elephant “BQA”


Elephant handler training an elephant to retrieve a brush for a verbal or range cube reward. These elephants have had the basics down for years, but 6 am training sessions occur every morning to keep the elephants and handlers sharp. This one is learning to discriminate between a hat and a brush, and to give it back to the handler in exchange for several range cubes. Ted participated in all aspects of their program, including taking all-night behavioral observations.
