Stunning in every way, wonderful to see any elephant which still has its tusks. To much going on in this world which needs to stop, maybe one day the animals can live in peace and be where they are suppose to be. #elephants #elephanttusks #zoo #zootrips #zoodays #zoovisit #zooanimal #zooelephant #chesterzoo #stunningelephant #amazinganimal #amazingzoo #amazinganimals #zoochester

@idg.photography • “I had read about this ritual - for about 20-minutes this bull elephant walked around the carcass of the fallen elephant, smelling it and gently prodding it with his foot. Perhaps it was an old friend. Perhaps it was just the remains of a fellow elephant he never knew. I will never know but it was a very moving experience nonetheless.” Such an amazing story. This reaction shows the complexity of elephant thought and emotion. The social connection to a deceased elephant and an understanding that the elephant has died is clear to see, although the precise details, such as whether this behaviour equates to grief, remain extremely difficult to understand. That spending time with a deceased offers no immediate evolutionary advantage also hints at at the depth of emotional response on display. They are truly incredible animals. .
