Penis-Erection

When a non-musth male elephant urinates he fully extends his penis and usually thereafter obtains an erection. Infants and calves usually obtain an erection when they are suckling and both young and adult males sometimes obtain semi and full erections when they are engaged in sparring activities, especially when these end in male-male mounting. In some cases erection of the penis appears to be a form of display though this requires further investigation. (99)
