A mated female’s relatives and companions joining her in calling and displaying following a mating. Females streaming with Temporin, engage in Open-Mouth vocalising, calling with powerful Mating-Pandemonium-Rumbles, Roars, and Social-Trumpets while Head-Raising, Ear-Lifting and Tail-Raising. Their calls are associated with Rapid-Ear-Flapping and the aroused participants may Urinate and Defecate in excitement. Females may turn toward the male, reaching their trunks to touch his penis or his semen on the ground, or to touch one another, and, then, turn rapidly outward in a kind of Pirouette (away from the male; probably to ensure long-distance advertisement of availability of the oestrus female) and again, while Head-Raising, Ear-Lifting and Rapid-Ear-Flapping, continue to call. The Mating-Pandemonium is a form of Bonding-Ceremony and may include High-Fiving.
