Animals have emotions - just be around them for a while and you see that.

Patricia I love the polar bear photo.

Beautiful elephants. I remember a show I saw on PBS last winter about elephants. What moved me was a troop, made up of sisters, aunts, mothers, and immature elephants come across a group of three young juvenile males. Suddenly the young bulls started charging at the females (or so I thought). What it was is that they recognized the females, who in turn recognized them. They were the nephews, sons, cousins, and sons of this troop of females. The reunion was joyous! However, after a littl bit, one of the males was clearly looking for his mother, who had died earlier that year. His aunt comforted him.

A few days later, the aunt of the male showed him where his mothers remains were. He went to her remains alone, and stood there loving caressing her. After a few minutes, his aunt came up beside him, and gently draped her trunk across his shoulders, and stood there. When he was ready to leave, they momentarily touched trunks, and walked away side by side. It was very moving. Made me well up.
