Strong ties to family
The herd follows the female elephant. The calves are raised by the whole herd. When they are 12 years old, male elephants leave the herd and start living on their own. Since the females don’t leave their mothers, the herd is made up of the females’ offspring. In the same way, you respect a woman’s power in a human, you should do the same for a female elephant.
It is kind and considerate.
With their tongues, elephants are gentle giants. Like people, they need physical contact, like being touched after a long day of work. When a baby elephant screams or cries, the other elephants touch it with their trunks and stroke it.
They are smart animals with complex feelings, compassion, feelings, and awareness of themselves. The herd also stands up for people who can’t stand up for themselves. The herd forms a circle around those who are sick, hurt, or old to protect them. They didn’t move until they heard it was safe.
He loved swimming.
Elephants like to be in the water as much as people do. Their size doesn’t get in the way of how they swim.
Elephants often use their trunks as snorkels when they swim. It’s good for them to play in the water because when they float, their muscles can relax.
Elephants do not forget, and science backs this up. The older queen is getting better at telling who is a friend and who is an enemy. As a herdsman, it is his job to tell if someone coming up to his flock is a friend or an enemy. It lets the other elephants play and have babies without having to worry.
Elephants feel sad when a loved one dies just like people do. They put their heads on the head of the dead person and touched and stroked it. Even after a loved one had died years before, they stood still and were quiet for a few minutes. Their clear message!
Elephants eat, swim, run, care for, protect, and cry, just like people. Like us, elephants need help. Poachers and the trade in ivory are still going strong. Even though they have to follow rules and pay fines, big animals still need your help.
