Bark

Barks are transient and primarily noisy calls that differ from noisy roars in their very short duration. Similar to the roarsbarks may be combined with a rumble producing a composite bark-rumble. In Amboseli barks and bark-rumbles were heard very infrequently, but occurred in contexts similar to roars by calves: in the context of begging and when elephants were tusked or pushed. A 10-year-old female produced a bark as she was mated for the first time.
