8:14 am
>> we really are. we are moving through this 100-mile crate irhere with animal planet's dave salmoni headed to where the drones are right now. those liv drones over that herd of elephants. it's simply incredible. we have five live camas for you at home to bee o safari with us so as we're experiencing it, so are you at home and, dave, i want to take a look at this dronone footage and these elephants. we've seen these guy, right. >> we saw them fighting the other day. >> yes, we did. >> what happens is when there's babies around which is right around now the girls, they kick all the young boys out so they don't hurt the babies so now there's a little gup hanging out, bachelor's group, boys will be boys. >> called satellite males because they hang out near the herd but not allowed to be in the herd. >> i love wha you told me about the power of their trunks. >> the trunks, absolutely, one of their biggest strengths. they have over 100,000 muscles in their trunk. >> we've shown you the rhino and
8:15 am
third threatened species here in this continent, those tusks are beautiful but they're certainly unfortunately a commodity on the black market inhe asian market. >> yep. >> we need to do more to protect them. >> what happened was when the asian markets grew and more new wealth y y needed to have ivory tusks and that rhino horn. there's a lot of time and energy into keeping them safe. >> specifically in the crater there is natural barrier that 2,000-foot wall where a volcano once stood higher than mt. kilimanjaro. this is a protected area but there are also measures in place from anti-poaching patrols, tell me a little about what theyy do here tt's been so successful. >> one of the big things i said, it's hard to get inere without being sese. t ihink the biggest success of this park it was the f park ever t partner with the local people so on top of the anti- anti-poachining patrol and
8:16 am
will recognize those they don't recognize and t tell anti-poaching people there's a problem. >> look at this picture of an elephant. it's just incredible. you are seeing this elepht move through the tall grasses in the middl of the great migration here at the ngorongoro crater. you are seeing him d what so o many, 2 milon a animals are doing right now, live, theare in search of t`e nutrient rich grass here. >> absolutely. this is the largest mammal oal on the planet. imagine how much food they have to eat. only digt 30% of the food they put in. he's pulling up that grass and putting it in. he's going to put in a lot to be that big. >> yeah, and these animals trtrel far and wide. >> yeah, another fun fact i like about these guys ishat thehey actually talk too each other with a subsonic so we can't hear it but c talk from miles and miles to each other to tell each other how they are doing. a real strong family. >> i wasas hoping we would see
8:17 am
ung males sparring. >> it's part of the social structure. these males will al at one point want to breed with the herd so the boys that win those little tussles right when if comes to breeding time the strongest, the fittest, he gets to have time with t adies. >> but i alsoove speaking of the ladies as we look at these four cameras live over had incredible herd of elephants. the women are in charge. >> women, it's a hierarchal structure soo the girls decide where they go, when they go and how they go. if they don't want a boy around send him out. >> just like us. just like us, dave. >> absolutely. ladies rule the house. >> as we're moving through the cratater and, oh, we're re. we made itit. oh, my goodnessss. i looked behind and saw the elephants. you're seeing them too. they arere so beautiful but they're far away from the rest of the a animals i t crater here. they move around. do ty like to be alone. >> it's not so much the seclusion. it's just a matter of they're eating different things and moving inn certain areas so the herd that's close is closer to this end of the park so what
8:18 am
of different habitats so you can see thwater when we ha the flamingos, a forested area a they're in the area that the rls like the most, the trees, because the herd will be there. >> it's so incredible and wre showing this to you live with our five cameras but the one camera you really can get a a immersive 3d virtual reality experience is that im-360 camera near the forest he. >> t that's where the black ryan and elephants will be. >> you can check it out on your tablet, your phone. you can pan it, look up, look downwn, zm in and really see everything as it's happening here in the crater during the greatt migration and this is something that is so spectacular. it's one of the wonders of the world. >> natural wononr of the worldld and the reason is there's so many. never seen masssmounts of animals move together as a team. so obviously wt they'll do is they'll follow the rain. the rain comes down and ty
8:19 am
it gets eaten they have to move on. this is where a lot of these wildebeests and zebra and gazelle all come to have their babies. >> you say zebra, i say zebra. you say wildebeest. >> i say africa gets to name the imal because they haha it. iirew up in n nth america so i used to call it zebra and ldebeest. >> you're correct and i'm wrong. it's all right. with all of those millions, 2 million migrating that is when the lions ce out to play because they have a steady food soce. > all the predators so in the crater here you've got eight prides of lions and you've got hyena, everything eating, unfortunately, all the new nutrient that's coming in which is the animal. >> nutrient rich grass because ofoftsolcanic beginnings. >> absolutely. the reason why they have all their babies at the s se time protection in numbers. it's the odds of, hey, i won't be the one that gets grabbed by one of these predators but all the babiesre on the ground so only a small percentage can be
8:20 am
>> it's beautiful as we're looking at these live pictures of elephants just slowly moving. you pointed this out to me yesterday. they look like they'y're moving in slow motion. you say thehey can outrun any man. >> the slowest elephant would outrun usain bolt. >> wow. >> you can see the earslapping because it's so hot right nowo he or she is cooling himself down because he runs blood through hisears. >> isn't this incredible back in new york. >> he's saying that the slowest elephant could beat the fastest man in the world, is that what we just heard. >> that's a true statement. >> that's unbelievable. i'm so glad you guys explained the great migration because we were all wondering where they're going from and where they're going t t s thanknkou for the education. >> amy doing a great j holding on. hard reporting on the road,ast speeds doing an awesome job. >> also learned my house is just like an elephant herd. women rule. >> you know what, amy, you're
8:21 am
with you. that's the beauty of it so we do feel like we're there. thank you. >> that was the idea. >> and because i've never seen an elephant out of captivity never seen one reach down and grab that huge amount of grass and just take it in. >> a thousand muscles in the trunk. is that what they said. >> amazing. >> i love their big ears. so beautiful. i love these pictures. >> this has been a spectacular thing. let's getet you -- by theheway, need to tk about weather this morning because dallas pd is working fuhrously. we've had a lot of bad accident i'veve already seen tractor trairs flipped. a lot of strong winds and rough rain. dallas, better in the afternoon. tornado warnings pop around corpus christi, also around galveston this morning so be very careful. this afternoon by about 3:3: that storm s stem moves towards new orleans. you don't have to be in the severe line to get b bad weather. flash flood watches in the nohe parts, alabama also in georgia on into the carolinas a as

8:32 am
>> on a hot day like this they'll lay out and you'lll see they'll turn a pink color but it's a an oil that comes out of their skin and protects them. >> is this common they're all hanging out sleeping there in the lake gentleman. >> yeah, this is part of the day. they'll come and sleep in the wateruring the day and at nighttime they come out and graze. even though they're that dangerous they onl eat vegetaes, grass. >> that is good t know. there are so many incredible animals here in this crater and the ecosystem works because it's the only place where people co-exist with animals. those people are called the maasai and i got the opportunity to go into one of their villages and experience very hap celebration for one young couple. they're known as the maasai, a nomadic tribe living across parts of easast africa hihistorically cattle herders and fearsome warriors. the day we vised a
8:33 am
daughter, 20-year-olold endoya getting married to -year-old megaliki. the first of what will probably be many wives. >> very big deal. no matter how many wives hean have the first wife is always like t the pillar of that family. >> reporter: these two of maasai descent are translator thoughshowing us around. the bridede sewhat shy leaving for a n new one after they paid dowrey of f ttle. >> just before they left the bride's home, you know, the elders from the tribe who ask her, are you ready to go with this man and she said yes. the boy alsoas asked that, are our daughter? and he said, yes, he will. >> reporter: a tribe steeped in centuries old traditions, the maasai are grappling with change and reconciling their place in
8:34 am
how do you keep them away from electronics and modern advances? >> it's hard because, you know, a few who have a chance to go to school. they see cell phones, television and, you know, asshey see that they come home and they want it. >> reporter: and yet the wedding we witnessed shows their determination to carry on their traditions for centuries to come. >> we saw the boys were jumping and the girls were singing. what is that trtrition? >> whoever canan jump higherr and maneuver the jumpspsmpress girls and whichever girl can shake the shoulders of their white necklaces better than the others will impress the boys. you know, it's one of the few tribes in africa which is still very proud to tir culture. >> we want to thank abercrombie and kept for giving us that incredible access and speaking of access, you have at home an amazing view of what we're seei live here withive cameras and our two drones over those hippos in the pond cooling
8:35 am
you say they're sleeping in there. >> sleep there during the day and nighttime come out and have their grass. certain types they have pools like that wherere ctain males will get a territory in that water and they'll try to convince a couple of girlfriends to come and hang out withhem and those areis girls. >> those are hisis girls. the males are in charge i the hippo family. >> i doubt it actually. sometimes of the year they're more aggressive but doesn't mean they're in chargege >> during the day dohey ever get out of the lake or water. >> that's where they get the grass, on land so that's probably what makes them so dangerous is because they're walkou goaround at nighttim there are people walking around at nighttime without flashlights and because they're dark and gray, if a hippo gets nervous he reac with his mouth open and starts biting. >> those jaws aremething. how big, how heavy are these hippos. >> they can be up to twoons. >> wowow >> so once again we talked a aut fastst elephantnt you'llever outrun a hihippo. >> all right, dave. i'll send it back to you in newew york. it's really stunning,
8:36 am
>> by any chance do you know, it's pretty speacular why that pond and the lake is so green? >> that's an algae so when you have shallow water and lots of sunlight you get a lot of algae. >> do they eat that? >> they won't eat it but they got fish in e. they're eatinggll that stuff. >> ittll works. >> very vivid, though, thank you, both. jesse, i had a great question too. is the lake shallow enoug th're standing or are they that good of swirlers. >> i was wondering t that too. are they floating right now? >> they can do both. they can float. they can stand, most likely they're standing. that's where they feel most comfortable and that's where they'll sleep but i hippopo can hold his breath for more than 20 minutes. >> twowo tons a they can float. >> yes. they come up a lot like a whale and come up and you'll hear ththeir nos go pooof. >> dave can make a pip poe
