My favorite animal is the elephant because they form the closest friendships of all animals. Once there was this guy and he helped injured and fierce elephants. When he died the whole herd traveled hundreds of miles to visit him and touch him with their trunks. They traveled quietly through the bush and no one knew how they knew he died but he was their friend. They are deep friends to each other, too. They mourn for each other, and play with each other, and travel together, and support each other if one has a flaw. They are very sensitive and powerful, and, they tell jokes. As opposed to the leopard who is a solitary hunter. And mostly alone on a branch. They must be very lonely. Or, maybe just like listening to the wind and thinking about things.
