Elephant hug



Elephants are among the most intelligent, sensitive species on Earth. Females often live in societal groups with their relatives and offspring. Living into their 70’s, elephants are one of only a few species recorded showing advanced emotional displays (such as empathy). They communicate by touch, sight, smell and sound. Here, an adult female and a juvenile lock trunks in a sensitive moment. The trunk is an elephants most important and sensitive appendage.
