Answer ( 1 )

  1. Reproductive rates.

    Pigs mature at 0.5 years & have 20 babies per year.
    Cows mature at 2 years & have 1 baby per year.
    Elephants mature at 10 years & have 0.13 babies per year. *Two years of gestation and 5 years of calving.
    You kill one elephant, you’ve ended 20 years of effort.
