Documentary: Secret Language of Elephants

Secret Language of Elephants (15:00) For two decades, a group of wild African elephants has been watched over, studied and protected by their own guardian angel: an extraordinary American scientist named Andrea Turkalo. 

Turkalo's own story is pretty amazing, but not nearly as compelling as the insights into elephant behavior her research has revealed, especially when it comes to "the secret language of elephants."  This CBS' 60 Minutes documentary investigates the work researchers are doing by listening to elephant sounds and observing their behavior which is resulting in an "elephant language dictionary". Bob Simon reports.
