Elephants have always been my favorite animal. When I think of animals, they've always been the first one I thought of. As a kid I loved characters like Tantor in Tarzan, or Colonel Hathi and his army in The Jungle Book, or Dumbo. An aspect I particularly like, and the primary reason for making this thread, is the sheer amount of intelligence and love these animals have, especially their strong sense of family. Quoted from Wikipedia: Fucking beautiful. Reading that brought a tear to my eye. The day those creatures go extinct is the day I declare war on whatever killed the last one.
