Elephants have long been known to share similar traits with humans such as empathy, grief, and several other traits. Even when meeting new elephants, many will interwine their trunks to say ‘hello’ just like humans who would shake hands. They also sense danger and will do everything to save other animals in distress and elephants have been seen saving humans.
