The elephant altruism bit completely blew me away:

Quote:

The matriarch charged at him and knocked him over with her trunk, breaking one of his legs. In the evening, when he did not return, a search party was sent in a truck to find him. When the party discovered him, he was being guarded by an elephant. The animal charged the truck, so they shot over her and scared her away. The herdsman later told them that when he could not stand up, the elephant used her trunk to lift him under the shade of a tree. She guarded him for the day and would gently touch him with her trunk.[21]


Would most humans do that? just boggles the mind.

Animals are a lot smarter than most human beings. I always lol when some people think that animals are really dumb.

don't rule out the existance of a spirit here...there are numerous stories of humans knowing when a loved one dies dispite being miles or even continents apart and never recieving any news.

They have a bad feeling, think about a loved ones death and later find out they died and are like "I knew something happened"

both of those type events have happened numerous times...

there are also hundereds of instances of children who know everything about a dead human from the past as though they lived out that person's life first...infact ISH's own vapid was born with knowedge of ancient Roman currency without being told anything...it's more common than people know.

Absolutely beautiful creatures.

Sharp memories.

Versatile trunks that can hold a pencil or crush a tree.

And endearing whether depicted as Dumbo or Horton Hears a Who.

God bless elephants!

You weren't asking me but I have two cents on it:

"smarter" is tricky and the short answer is no. Other animals (we're animals too remember) can't build spaceships or make movies. But there's animals ahead of us in all the five senses (we don't see, hear, smell, etc the best on the planet)- I think most modern science asserts "the five senses" is a rudimentary way of viewing our senses anyway (basically we have more than 5 and the standard "sight, taste, touch, hearing, smell" categories are a simplistic and narrow learning mnemonic) but it stands to reason that these animals could have senses that we can't fully understand. Unfair to assume that because we're atop the food chain (and running this rock son!) that we're the only sentient beings.

You hear about these dogs and cats (who i think are probably a step below the "intelligence" level of elephants, dolphins, etc) at cancer clinics who know when a patient is about to pass. You hear about these lizards who gather for eclipses. It's wild (no pun intended), there's definitely some deeper understanding in the animal kingdom.
