    This episode of the elephants was one of my all time favorites. I would like to know will it be showing again? Love for all my family & friends to view. Also how can I purchase a video. Thanks for your response

    this was a great episode.we loved it .but how is it that elephants’ brains are the
    size of peanuts when they are soooo intelligent

  • Linda

    It is an old wives tale that elephant’s brains are the size of a peanut. They have the largest brains of any other creature on earth including us.

    MAN HAS TO LEARN FROM THIS REMARKABLE ATTITUDE OF A ELEPHANT WHO TRY TO SAVE HIS BABY LIFE.I WAS VERY MUCH EMOTIONAL BETWEEN MOM AND THE BABY.THANK U PHOTOGRAPHER

    A very touching clip. How desperately the mother tries to revive her baby. And there are humans who think animals are lesser beings to be hunted and to be done with as they please. Some acts of altrurism shown by animals put humans to shame as many of us lack the compassion to even giving a hand to a fellow human being. They are superior to us in every way because they can survive without us but we will become extinct without them.

    I also remember this episode from many years ago. This particular scene with the baby stands out, but I also remember there was another calf which had a problem with its foot. He couldn”t staighten it.
    I have looked for a copy of this episode several times. Is there anywhere that I could purchase it? It is amazing.
    thank you.
