Decomposition Time Lapses
'The Elephant: Life After Death' Studies the Decay of an African Giant

By: Jordan M (Rockstar) Feb 17, 11

According to this incredible new documentary called ‘The Elephant: Life After Death’, a dead adult elephant contains enough calories to feed a grown human for over eight years.

Despite the staggering amount of eating one human would have to do to finish off an elephant corpse, however, the incredible footage featured in this clip shows wild animals in Tsavo West National Park in Kenya finishing the task in just seven days. In a remarkable and completely unique experiment, ‘The Elephant: Life After Death’ shows vultures, hyenas, leopards and insects reducing the young adult elephant to a mere skeleton in just under a week—no mean feat for a six million calorie meal.
