Elephant Alphabet – E is for Emotion

September 7, 2011

There are many fine educational videos about elephants. I’d like to share a couple videos that highlight how incredibly emotional elephants can be. In some ways they seem even more emotional than us.

Correction: I mistakenly read the videographer’s comment as identifying the young elephant. In fact, the elephant is not identified by name. But it appears to be a bit younger than 2 years old.
The first video shows an orphan elephant at the Nairobi Nursery (David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust). In the video, she adores the attention and physical contact with her human visitors and just cannot get enough (growing more mischievous in the process).

This is the 2nd of a 2-part video about a retired circus elephant, Shirley. At the Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee, Shirley must say bye to her former zoo keeper of over 20 years. But she has a surprise reunion with an elephant which is quite tender.
