Elephants are very social creatures who live in herds. They have been observed to cry, laugh, and even "hug" each other. The elephant trunk contains 100,000 muscle units and is used to grasp and strip leaves from trees, drink water, spray themselves to cool down, smell their environment, and as a snorkel when crossing deep waters. Elephants are intelligent and sensitive animals who deserve a closer look.
Includes a table of contents, index, sidebars, and full of extraordinary photography throughout.
