Elephants may just be the most incredible animals on Earth. Not only are they intelligent, but they have such a range for emotional capacity.
They can feel, they express their happiness or their sadness. They are social creatures, like us. If a baby elephant cries, the herd will come to comfort the baby by caressing it with their trunks.
Elephants are not only deep-feeling animals, they are the only species on Earth with their unique characteristics, not a single other animal shares a similar physique.
And here's another wild fact for you -- elephants purr just like cats! Sure they communicate though trumpet sounds and such, but they also produce rumbles so low that the human ears don't pick up on it.
There are just so many reasons why elephants are amazing but for now, we'll let you dive into some awesome facts about them!
