"You're asking me about a pig in a poke!"

Those few words were described as having "terrifying" consequences for British democracy - after they were used by one of the prime minister's closest allies over the weekend.

Then, as if one complicated animal metaphor wasn't enough, a former prime minister warned politicians not to fall into an elephant trap.

World Elephant Day is to inform people and organisations about the threat that an elephant faces. Although, elephants are loved by most of the generations but they are also on the verge of extinction.

Elephants seem to have a capacity that no other animal is known to have. Using odour alone, they can tell whether buckets containing differing amounts of desirable foods contain more or less.

"Elephants are capable of doing something that a lot of other species are able to do using their eyes," Joshua Plotnik, the lead scientist on the project, told Quirks & Quarks host Bob McDonald.

An elephant described as the “saddest in the world” has died after more than four decades living on her own in a Spanish zoo.

The female Asian elephant arrived at the Cordoba Zoo when she was three years old, in 1976.

Flavia was separated from her herd and taken to the zoo and spent the next 43 years in solitary* confinement*.

It is not known why she was kept on her own.

These elephants remained solitary or associated in mixed-age and mixed-sex groups within the forested areas.

Environmental and anthropogenic factors have not just degraded elephant habitats and left them stressed, but also changed their social behaviour, notes a recent study conducted by the National Institute of Advanced Studies (NIAS), Bengaluru.
