A Memory of Elephants

Elephants are the largest land animal. The two species, African and Asian, are distinguishable by the shape of their ears and the one- or two-fingered tips of their trunks. A self-aware species, they are smart, compassionate and can recognize themselves in a mirror. They live in tight-knit, matriarchal societies, made up of mothers, daughters, sisters and aunties. The young males leave at around 12 years old and live solitary lives. Elephants communicate through sounds, ground vibrations, body language, touch, and scent. An elephant’s trunk can weigh up to 400 pounds, yet is so sensitive it can pick up a single grain of rice. Elephants can live into their eighties, are afraid of bees, and cannot jump.
