They fascinate me. They are large but gentle creatures. Huge feet. Flapping ears. Long nose/trunks. They are very fascinating. It is also said that elephants are intelligent and have very good memories. Elephants are the largest living land animals on Earth today, according to Wikipedia. It is just sad that their numbers are dwindling.
From then until today, the elephant population is continually threatened by poaching and ivory trade. People kill these elephants for their tusks. These large, slow-breeding animals cannot hide from poachers and take years to reproduce. One kill, that's all it takes.. and the hope for reproduction is then cut in half. What the elephants use to dig for water, search for food or occasional weapons for survival, people kill and get these tusks for money.
And they say animals are dangerous. I say otherwise. These humans never fail to amaze me with their arrogance, stupidity and their being downright heartless. (pouts and crosses arms) Shame.
