In Amboseli, Ella's less than one year old calf, Emmet, is eating his mother's faeces. Ella's poo is very loose and it may be for this reason that his older sister, Emma, several times attempts to prevent him from eating it. As she touches him he rumbles. She touches him repeatedly as she tries to stop him from eating. He rumbles each time and eventually stops and Comfort-Suckles (see Gestures Database) from his sister - who is non-lactating (has no milk). This is one example of his calls.
