Arguably some of the most intelligent animals on the planet, elephant communication is beyond words. With this species, body language is just the tip of the iceberg, and all types of elephant communication are intertwined. The bonds between related elephants can last a lifetime and family members are able to communicate with one another with the slightest of movements or a glancing touch.
Elephant experts even think the animals have a sense of slapstick humour. Elephants have been witnessed repeatedly play-charging at cars before stumbling comically, and researchers say it happens too often to be a real mistake. Elephants have a sense of self, and are perhaps entertaining themselves or others.
