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!

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.

just sayin
Read the wiki.. Elephants have large hippocampus's which control emotions and memory and huge brains in general that are similar in size and structure to humans. Much more convincing than saying its spirits lol.

um...how exactly does that explain them knowing when someone far away dies?

I like miller's "they have an amazing sense of smell" much more than that...and I don't rule out anything like that either, I'm just saying no one should rule out spiritual factors either, this isn't the only time something like that has happened.

I thought that you were talking about the fact that they cared that the dude died.. and yea I would much rather take their sense of smell and general life sense as an explanation. Animals can identify people and things through smell better than we can through sight.

no of course not, the "magic" part is that they knew when he died without being told...and went to his home

that would be an extremely strong sense of smell, but maybe that is possible, IDK

Hey man, I love this story. And i've had a deeper appreciation for elephants ever since ManuteBolforever posted a nice article about their rituals. I agree, other animals are much more complex than most humans give them credit, and learning about their adaptability and rituals is fascinating.

However, the phrase "animals are a lot smarter than most humans" is so retarded that it almost makes sense, at least in this particular case.

Default Re: The Elephant Whisperer Is Dead. The Elephants F*cking Knew.

i'm real skeptical they knew, in fact it seems more staged than anything like someone maybe led them there. i just can't see them organizing a tribute at all, its too much of a custom/honorary thing for an animal of any kind to do imo. i figure they got more important stuff to do like surviving...

Yeah, I've got a black lab like that one. They're really loving and sweet by nature and really easy going. I worked at a summer camp the last four years, and my parents told me for the first few weeks I was gone, he'd spend big parts of the day laying by the back door waiting on me; especially at night because I let him sleep in my room. They said once it got dark and later at night (usually around 10-11 o'clock or so) he'd start scratching the door and whimpering.

Dogs in general are the shit, and I don't get how some people don't like them, unless they were brutally attacked by one or something as a kid.
