Elephant Stories

"Elephants use their trunks not only to reach food but also to sniff and touch it. With their unparalleled sense of smell, the animals know exactly what they are going for. Vision is secondary." -Frans de Waal, Dutch Primatologist/Ethologist.

“Perhaps the most important lesson I learned is that there are no walls between humans and the elephants except those that we put up ourselves, and that until we allow not only elephants, but all living creatures their place in the sun, we can never be whole ourselves.” 

 

Lawrence Anthony from his book The Elephant Whisperer
