elephants can recognize over 200 individual elephant voices, which helps them to maintain the largest social networks of any non human species yet studied. they can also recognize different human languages and determine the ethnicity, gender, and age of a human solely from the sound of his or her voice. 

as humans pose the greatest threat to elephants, these animals have learned to discern who might potentially cause them harm. elephants, for example, are much more wary around masai men, who have hunted them in the past, than they are around a masai women or kamba men, who have no history of hunting them.
