"elephants are legendary for their memory and intelligence, including attributes associated with grief, making music, altruism and compassion. we came across this elephant whose corpse was overcome by vultures and jackals. from a distance we heard and then saw another elephant approaching at a fast pace. she was successful at chasing away the predators and then very slowly and with much empathy wrapped her trunk around the deceased elephant’s tusk. she stayed in this position for several hours guarding her friend." - photo and text by john chaney in botswana, 2007.
