What a precious moment! A newborn elephant weights about 200-300 pounds, this girl was way more than that. That’s why the man wasn’t ecstatic about the idea of her sitting on his lap. Elephants have the largest brains in the animal kingdom. More and more studies show how wise and intelligent these giants are. Elephants are even able to differentiate between genders and ages – all from the sound of a human voice. Purring is one of the way elephants communicate with each other, they purr like cats. Although, the frequency of those sounds is way below the human frequency and hence, our ear cannot hear it. These animals have a great sense of smell and an unbelievable memory, they are able to recognize people by their smell even after many decades. Elephants can be very aggressive if they feel threatened, besides that, they are very gentle and caring. They even have warm greeting ceremonies to welcome back a fellow member of the herd, if it has been away for a long time.
