Since Aristotle and long before, people who have been privileged to Happy Independence Day Elephant Special Day Of July Shirt time observing and interacting with elephants have expressed similar sentiments.They have been trained for thousands of years to do everything from play soccer to destroy the enemy on the battlefield. They were the tanks of the ancient world and the front end loaders and the tractors. Their size and strength are of course, second to none.There are many tales and legends told about elephants, both long ago and today in many different languages and among very different cultures. What is so telling about these stories is that they don’t usually go on about their incredible size and strength, because that is obvious. What they all eagerly tell of is the great intelligence, formidable memories and complex nature of these gentle giants.Now, I have to be honest and say that when people ask me how clever a particular animal, such as a lion for example is, I usually say, “a lion is a genius at being a lion”. What I am trying to say is that every animal has evolved to perfectly fit its niche and may be very dumb at doing what doesn’t benefit it, and very clever at doing what does.

Apparently, in the late 1600s, an Irish physician named Allen Moulin was trying to Happy Independence Day Elephant Special Day Of July Shirt out why such big pachyderms might quiver at the sight of such a small rodent as a mouse, according to Christopher Plumb’s “The Georgian Menagerie: Exotic Animals in Eighteenth-Century London” (I. B. Tauris, 2015). Moulin reasoned that since elephants had no epiglottis — the flap of cartilage that covers the opening to the windpipe when swallowing — the big creatures could be “worried” that a mouse might crawl up their trunk and suffocate them, Plumb wrote. “This seemed reasonable since the keeper [Moulin] had seen his elephant sleep with his trunk close to the ground, so that only air might go up it,” Plumb, who received his doctoral degree from the University of Manchester, wrote in the book. However, as biologists today know, elephants are equipped with that fleshy windpipe cover.”I think the myth arose by the idea of the mouse crawling up the elephant’s trunk and nostrils — but that is absurd because the elephant could easily simply blow and eject the mouse,” said elephant expert Richard Lair, who has researched elephants for 30 years, published multiple studies on their behavior and is an international adviser to the Thai Elephant Conservation Center. “And that’s in the very unlikely case that the mouse could anyway.”
