Elephants are social and emotional creatures, with the biggest brains in the animal kingdom. In many ways, elephants resemble humans. They have a 60 to 80 years life expectancy, they can remember things that happened decades ago, they hug, they use body language to communicate, and they are very attached to their families. In Asian cultures, elephants symbolize wisdom, while in other cultures they are considered a sign of good luck. Given their lovable character, it’s no wonder that elephants are portrayed like gentle and reliable creatures in children books, cartoons and movies.
