I’ve written about Angry Elephants venting their frustrations on vans rather than people. Now I’d like to show you that elephants also can cooperate with each other at a high level. I think it is interesting that, without language skills, these elephants seem to know when to:

  1. wait for help,
  2. find creative ways to accomplish a task, and
  3. when not to try.

Just think what they could do if they could talk!
