Composite of an elephant skull, a crying elephant depicts the ongoing pain of these magnificent creatures as their family members continue to be slaughtered for their tusks. With remarkable memory for individuals and places, elephants always stop when they encounter the bones of another elephant, pausing to mourn the death of their fellow elephant. Their feelings of sorrow reflect their close family ties and social complexity. Waving their trunks in the air and trumpeting comforting sounds, the elephants creatively find different ways to express their sympathy for others. Elephants bear a plethora fascinating behavioral and intellectual facets, though if the illegal ivory trade continues, we will no longer witness the unique qualities of this beautiful creature.
