The elephant have a very complex social structure. They form small family groups consisting of an older matriarch and three or four offspring, along with their young. Calves are very dependent on their mothers for the first years of their lives. They are slow developers when compared with other animals, with the females only having their first calve at about the age of eleven years, and bulls not competing for mating rights before age of about twenty years. Single young are born any time of the year. The gestation period is twenty-two months.
