Chimp & See Talk


  • NuriaM by NuriaM scientist, moderator

    Although we at C&S are focused on chimp matching, we might at times be lucky enough to match elephants too and thus name them.

    This list provides us with elephants that show distinctive traits and with elephants that we found and recognized in more than one video so far.

    Thanks for your interest in elephants!!
