The largest existing land animals, native to Africa and Asia. Elephants command your attention, more so than any other animal. Like humans, elephants have a very close-knit family bond. When a herd member falls behind or is absent, the herd shows great emotion when reconnected.
They are increasingly becoming an endangered species due to poaching for their ivory tusks for trade.
We love elephants, once you spend time in their vicinity, one realises they are very playful and emotional. Yet you truly see a certain level of wisdom and connectedness in them.
No elephant herd is complete without a matriarch. She demonstrates leadership through wisdom, strength and her extra ordinary skills in problem solving, openness, social intelligence, decisiveness and patience. The Mommy elephant, she is a true boss; she is fierce and strong, but at the same time affectionate, caring and protective of her family members.
