Marking

A (usually) musth male rubbing the temporal gland against tree trunk or the ground (when mud wallowing). Marking may be so vigorous that the male departs with bark and debris on the side of his face. Dissected temporal glands have been found to have pieces of bark embedded deep inside them. Marking may be seen by non-musth elephants but occurs more often in musth. (98)
