We had the pleasure of feeding, bathing, and interacting with Asian elephants one morning. Each elephant had its own personality and loved the sugar cane we fed them.
When the elephants were ready to move, they moved. Really moved. You either fed them more sugar cane or got out of their way. At one point while bathing them one of the elephants started flapping its ears, hitting me in the back of the head and nearly knocking me face first into the water!
