Pygmy elephants, as this documentary on elephants informs us, are smaller than the other elephants. Possibly an adaptation of life in deep jungle. For many years, pygmy elephants were considered to be descendants of some elephants that were given as a gift to the Sultan 300 years ago. However, scientific research indicated that pygmy elephants existed in Borneo not 300 years but like 300 thousand years.
This amazing discovery has given pygmy elephants a new protection and Burt a new job. Burt is to track the pygmy elephants, map their migration route and learn everything he can about them. His journey will set him at place where few people have footed. Forest elephants are migratory. They could be anywhere in the thick forest.
