Spinning

Spinning or circling around, a socially excited group of elephants turn rapidly toward and away from each other. Spinning is an extreme form of Reach-Touch where elephants may turn rapidly 180 degrees to reach out to different friends. It is most often seen during interactions of extreme social excitement, particularly during intense Greeting-Ceremonies, when relatives come together in a close cluster Head-Raising, Ear-Lifting and Rapid-Ear-Flapping, vocalizing, Urinating and Defecating.
