In India, some believe that this is a thankful gesture of an elephant. Elephant expert Joyce Poole says this gesture is known as "periscope sniffing," a common posture most often seen when an elephant is assessing a possible threatening situation.

  • Die Rettung des Baby-Elefanten hat mich zutiefst bewegt, besonders die Dankbarkeit der Mutter und dass die Herde immer in der Nähe gewartet und gebangt hat. :herz: :wink:
