Post-Copulatory-Stance

A mated female stepping forward Head-Raising, Ear-Lifting, Tail-Raising and Rapid-Ear-Flapping, streaming Temporin and with Mouth-Open calls with a powerful series of characteristic rumbles. The female alternatively turns toward the male and reaches her trunk to touch his penis (Test-Genitals) or semen on the ground (Test-Semen) and then again turns rapidly outward and upward (away from the male; probably to ensure long-distance advertisement of availability; this would also qualify as a form of Spinning) Ear-Lifting, Tail-Raising and Rapid-Ear-Flapping and with Mouth-Open calls loudly and repeatedly at lengthening intervals and diminishing sound pressure levels. These extremely powerful and characteristic calls attract the attention of distant males and may be repeated for up to 45 minutes. (119)
