Defensive-Circle

Perceiving a threat adult females protect calves in the center of a tight Defensive-Circle of elephants. Adults face outwards, heads up and ear-spread, toward the perceived threat, their rumps to the center, like the spokes to a wheel. They may vocalize and reach out to touch other family members (Reach-Touch) (Lee personal communication). This is the same as Bunching.
