Dear MEL Topic Readers,
Six elephants die trying to save each other at Thai waterfall
The elephant is the largest living animal on earth. Elephants are found in sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, and Southeast Asia. While male elephants leave their families when they grow up, females form family groups that consist of female(s) and their calves. They are very social animals and communicate with each other by touch, sight, smell, and sound. Elephants are also known to have self-awareness and to show empathy for dying and the dead. They can live as long as 70 years in the wild if they can survive from poachers who are only interested in their tusks.
Recently, six elephants including a baby elephant were found dead in a waterfall in Thailand. They are believed to have tried to save the young elephant that had slipped from the cliff and subsequently each other. Two surviving elephants were found trying to save or revive the dead ones.
Of the 7,000 elephants living in the country, half of them are in captivity.
Read the article and see the photos to learn about how elephants live and die.
