Okay, so we have to admit something … we’re obsessed with elephants. There isn’t a day goes by when we’re not absolutely perplexed and amazing by the incredible abilities of these gentle giants. But, it is one thing to know that elephants are highly intelligent and emotional beings, and it is quite another to see them in action.

This video features an elephant who is caught on tape by a security camera, picking up trash and putting it in a garbage can. Hey, this nature reserve is his home and someone has made a mess of it – watch your back mess-makers, an elephant never forgets!

The elephant is not prompted to do this nor is he guided by any human hand … he just sees trash lying on the ground and knows it needs to be put away. It makes you wonder, if an elephant can properly dispose of trash … why can’t humans?!

To dispose of trash should be a human activity butt it appears humans have a lot to learn from elephants. Human beings should have more respect for elephants.

Tammie Karalfa ..... that would be far too much of a task for the elephant. It's hard to teach a human new tricks when they can't even master the old ones.
