    Is that the way they communicate with each other hundreds of miles away? I watched this show on elephants a few years ago and they were trying to find out how elephants always seem to know where their friends are.

    (If my Mom had her way, elephants and tigers would be pets.)

    And elephants steal your snacks that you take to the circus, plastic bag and all.

    That happened to me when I was young and I was so mad. He just snatched it from my father's hands.

    I wanted to kill that elephant! I hope he's dead! lol
