Elephants are regarded as one of the most intelligent animals on the planet - but here's a story that suggests they're among the wisest, too.
On Saturday, staff at the Bumi Hills Safari Lodge in Zimbabwe were surprised to discover a wild bull elephant had limped in from the surrounding bush to hold vigil outside a house there. Nick Milne, who manages the lodge's wildlife conservation foundation, arrived shortly after to assess the situation.
"We have elephants in the area, but mostly cows and calves. To have a bull walk up to a house is something that just does not happen," Milne told The Dodo. "So, I went to take a look, and it seemed like there was something seriously wrong with him. He wasn't able to move very well."
