I wonder if elephants also have names for individual people? The story below has always fascinated me. From the article:

“Upon the passing of Lawrence, these majestic beasts walked 12 hours from Zululand bush to their friend’s home to pay their respects. They stood vigil for two days outside of Lawrence’s house before returning to their regular lives in the bush. Lawrence’s son, Dylan shared, “They had not visited the house for a year-and-a-half and it must have taken them about 12 hours to make the journey.”

“If you think that’s the only time that Nana and her herds stood vigil for Lawrence, think again. This is because they will always travel 12 hours every year on 2nd March to pay their respects for their fallen comrade.”
