What sound does an elephant make?

Elephant Sound Name in english is called Trumpet.

A type of vocalization found only in certain species of elephant, the trumpet call is used by these animals to communicate with other members of their herd. The sound is produced when air is forced through a large set of vocal folds (located at the base of the tongue). The folds vibrate and create a low, rumbling sound that can be heard up to three miles away.

A variety of factors can affect the sound's pitch, tone and volume including age, health, stress levels and mood. Young calves are known to blow higher-pitched calls than more mature elephants. Elephants also use different trumpeting patterns depending on the situation and the herd's hierarchy. These different patterns include "staccato" calls for individuals in danger or distress, "echo" calls for groups communicating across a distance, and "concerto" calls made by several trumpeters simultaneously during social gatherings.

The elephant sound can be used to communicate different emotions and feelings, such as happiness, anger, curiosity, or annoyance. The sound that elephants make can also be used to communicate between members of the same herd. It is made in different ways depending on the situation. For example, an aggressive elephant might make a loud trumpet sound that indicates aggression towards other elephants nearby. A mother with her baby might make a softer trumpet sound to indicate that she is happy and in good health.
