Elephants in mourning...

A baby elephant is hit by a speeding car, breaking its back, two legs, and leaving serious internal injuries -- the baby will not survive... The herd is in a desperate panic, does a lot of shrieking, and tries to "kick" the baby up (as is an elephant's instinct) but in so doing only wind up unintentionally torturing the baby:


Elephants are the only land mammal other than humans known to funerealize their dead.

A baby has died and is carried, presumably by its mother, across a jungle road, by the baby's ears. It's sad, which the music tells you if you're not sure:

Oh, this is also interesting --- elephants are one of the few creatures who will quickly recognize their own reflection in a mirror, although this video doesn't go very far in proving that point: as a small herd runs past a mirror, the baby shrieks at their reflections, the other elephants instinctively come to its rescue, and then the herd keeps looking around wondering where all those elephants they just saw in the mirror have gone....
