Elephant are incredibly majestic animals; admired for their strength, power, and intelligence. An iconic symbol of Africa's wildlife! Did you know that an elephant brain is 3 TIMES the size of a human brain? With neurons 5 times larger too. Their capacity for intellect and emotion is huge.
Elephant Behaviour
Elephants think, feel and have the same ability as us to make considered decisions and follow split-second instincts. They form family bonds and friendships which last an entire lifetime. An example we should all aspire to follow. Elephant communication involves both direct and subtle movements; gestures and even sign-language. Their ability to send signals over vast distances, without the aid of technology, far surpasses our capabilities as humans. Follow their footsteps and select the images to discover more.

"The question is, are we happy to suppose that our grandchildren may never be able to see an elephant except in a picture book?" David Attenborough
