16 Neat Things Every Elephant Lover Needs

Elephants are huge creatures with equally big hearts and brains, hence why so many people are gaga for these gentle giants. Elephants have been documented showing humor, grief, compassion self-awareness, cooperation, tool-use, playfulness and swift learning abilities. This is largely related to the large size and many complex folds of the elephant brain, more advanced than any other animal except for whales.

Elephants have the most developed hippocampus, the brain region that controls emotion and spatial awareness, than any other animal. Interestingly, studies have found elephants are superior to humans when it comes to keeping track of multiple objects in 3D space.

Humans, Neanderthals and elephants are the only mammals known to carry out death rituals. When an elephant passes away the entire herd digs a shallow grave for the deceased friend, covering him or her with dirt and branches. The elephants are known to remain around the grave for days, as well as show signs of depression. If all of this information doesn’t make you an elephant lover you must be cold as ice!

To all my fellow elephant lovers out there, get ready to want every last awesome thing on this list.
