Today’s post was inspired by this video–seen on one of my favorite daily e-blogs, Taste Daily. So after watching these cuties playing around, i decided to harvest some information on them. Here are 5 things that I learned:

  • There are actually 3 types of elephants: Asian, African Bush and African Forest.
  • Elephants induce labour by self-medicating with certain plants.
  • Elephants are the only mammals that cannot jump (making this movie a myth lol)
  • Elephants prefer one tusk over the other, similar to how humans are either left or right-handed.(South Paw, South Tusk?)
  • My favorite: Elephants cry, play, have incredible memories, and laugh.

Well, I truly hope you have enjoyed today’s post. If so, please like my facebook page, share and subscribe! You might also enjoy 5 Cool Things About Dogs!
