African Elephants

I've always been a fan of elephants. They are so intelligent and family oriented. They express feelings similar to us when it comes to a death in their family - paying respects and holding vigils over their fallen members. Unfortunately, their numbers are dwindling as adult elephants are slaughtered for their ivory tusks. This is a tragic fact especially since ivory is bought by rich people that believes that it is somewhat of a status symbol.
