Abstract

Eight female captive Asian Safari Elephants were fed specially prepared wheat and maize flour, horse gram, brown channa, oil, salt, jaggery, green and forest tree fodder and other supplements based on maintenance requirements. We determined the efficacy of feed and fodder and their nutritive targets, seasonal desires and feeding habits for better health and growth.
