Are Elephants actually scared of mice?!?!


Im glad they did this but I have to say their experiment seems slightly flawed being that I think that the elephant is probably more freaked out by a pile of dung moving then the mouse underneath it.

This was really cool. But I wonder, elephants being super intelligent and self-aware, if they quite simply just don´t want to step and kill living things as many zoologists believe that they´re also aware of death.

hmmm I wonder?! Thats a nice way of seeing it! I also just wondered if they were freaked out by the fact that it was a BRIGHT WHITE MOUSE which is totally unnatural.
