Why You Should Love Elephants

When people ask me what my favourite animal is…I know the conversation is dying a slow painful death. Seriously though, I always say elephant. Elephants are amazing, and sometimes I think that people don’t appreciate how wonderful they are as much as they should.

Point Number One: Read this headline: Amber Mason, an eight-year-old girl from Bucks, England, was in Phuket, Thailand when the tsunami struck in 2004 – riding an elephant named Ningnong.
As the water rose, the elephant ran up the shore, taking the brunt of the impact and keeping Amber above the water.

Point Number Two:They are so so so intelligent. If you haven’t watched this elephant paint yet…go and do it now.

And finally, Point Number Three: elephants are said to be the most selfless animals in the world. Just look at this picture:

Yes, this elephant is saving a kitten.

‘Nuff said.

Thanks for reading, have a lovely day!
