After carrying their unborn young for around 22 months, it’s no wonder that mother elephants sometimes need a break. Elephant culture embodies the “it takes a village” mindset, with mothers appointing several babysitters to care for her baby so that she has time to eat enough to produce sufficient milk for it.

6. Elephants have a great sense of humor

"If the internet loves anything, it’s a good sense of humor. Look at this elephant just goofin’ around like one of the guys. What a goof! Welcome to the internet, friend. You’ll fit right in."

7. And finally, they have their own pants!

And we need help saving them from poaching! With every pair of Elephant Pants sold, $1 will be donated to the African Wildlife Foundation to keep these playful, awesome creatures around. Look good, and help our tusk-y friends!
