Asian Elephant (Elephas Maximus) hauling in the forest, Myanmar. The iron tree trunk is very heavy and the elephant runs out. It helps by placing the trunk on the ground by deploying many efforts. In the Taungoo area, elephants are used from November to March for skidding trunks of precious trees. In Mying Whai Wynn, mahouts of the Bamas ethnic group go and find Iron Wood and teak in the jungle near their village.
