Bear went out early in the morning, go to the river to take a bath it, cool off.
Not come to the river, he heard the distant sound of Winnie partners laughter.

"Poof!" Elephant to bear spray a big splash! Bear shy smile.
Elephants are like us in some ways. They live for a long time——fifty or sixty years. They can remember things very well. They never forget sadness or great happiness for many months.
Elephants are like us, but they are also different.
They live in families: families of females. There will be a few young males a few baby boys. But the females will soon send them away. An elephant family keeps only its daughters, mothers, grand mothers and its great grandmothers. They stay together for fifty, sixty... a hundred years. The older animals look after the young ones. The mothers teach their daughters and set a good example.
And what happens to male elephants? Well, the young males stay with their mothers for a time. Then they must leave the family. The females just send them away. A bull elephant doesn’t often have a friend. He [ives apart, away from the family, and often away from other bulls.
Sometimes the females call a bull. He can visit them then, and stay for a time. But soon his "wives" and sisters send him away again. The females have a very happy familly life. What do the bulls think about it? We don’t know.
