Elephants are emerging so they will not grow their pounds when goats are hunted and killed by the assault rifle, the study says.
Almost 90 per cent of African elephants were slaughtered in Mozambique's Gorongosa National Park for their ivory to finance the armed forces of the country.
But about a third of the women – the generation that emerged after the war ended in 1992 – have not developed dough, the recent figures point to it.
Men's elephant tips are bigger and heavier, but due to increased poaching, hunters began to focus on women.
Joyce Poole, a nonprofit executive named ElephantVoices, told National Geographic: "With time, the older population will get a really bigger share of vegetable femmes."
Other countries have also seen the transition to elephants growing up.
In South Africa, 98 percent of the 174 women in the Addo Elephant National Park reported that there was no pain in the early 2000s.
Edema has also caused the size of the forest to settle in some heavily hunted areas such as South Kenya.
Scientists say that elephants with this disadvantage may change their behavior.
The bugs are used to dig out the water or harvest trees for food, so mammals can travel further to find it to survive.
But scientists say that changes in factors affecting elephant life may have a greater impact on ecosystems.
Ryan Long, a behavioral ecologist at Idaho University, told National Geographic: "All or any of these changes in behavior can lead to changes in the distribution of elephants to the landscape and are large-scale changes that are most likely to affect the rest of the ecosystem."
The number of attractive elephants has shown a lasting effect that humans have had in animals.
