Though they are massive and fearsome in size, elephants are some of the gentlest creatures in the animal kingdom. Unfortunately, due the value of their ivory tusks, they have historically been one of the prime targets for poachers. Coupled with habitat destruction, the population of elephants have dwindled over recent decades, with some species going extinct entirely.
Elephants have been known to be outwardly friendly towards humans and are especially charmed by the sound of music. When floods hit Thailand in 2011, many homes and people’s personal property were destroyed. Fortunately, the elephant in this video managed to escape the ordeal unharmed. With a lot of work and determination, even the elephant’s favorite instrument could be salvaged.
