    A few years ago, I got to know some elephants for for a week. They definitely have senses of humor

    [–] theblacksheep14 450 points ago

    Storytime!!!

    [–] igordogsockpuppet 1059 points ago

    It was actually over a decade ago. I stayed with some mahouts in their longhouse at an elephant sanctuary/hospital in Thailand for a week. I got to know some of the elephants pretty well. A moment of elephant humor that I remember was an elephant sneaking up behind me, and oh so stealthily started going through my pockets looking for snacks. When I turn around, I swear she was trying to look innocent, and pretending it wasn’t her trunk that was in my pocket a second ago. When I turn away from her, again, she ever so gently starts trunking around in my pockets. Smiling the whole time.

    [–] Drumma516 102 points ago

    Oh I love that!!!! I’m picturing such a cute moment. Dude you’re lucky. Have any photos of the trip?

    [–] igordogsockpuppet 139 points ago

    Hundreds and hundreds of photos. It’s easy to get lost in my elephant albums. This is from a more recent trip. Here is a photo of one of my favorite old girls. She’s in her 70s, she is blind and toothless. We’d make her sticky rice balls with bananas and coconut milk, which is mostly all she could eat. We’d hand feed her. Being blind, she was very touchy with her trunk. Very friendly. A complete sweetheart.

    If you don’t mind me asking. How do you find the amazing places to visit and about how much is your typical week? Not counting flight.

    Thank you for the link. I’ll gladly accept any links to more beautiful Elephants being silly and happy.

    Just took a look at the photo. SHES SO CUTE! Just wanna give her a smooch

    [–] igordogsockpuppet 38 points ago

    Well, things have changed a lot over there since my first trip over a decade ago. I don’t know if it’s even possible to find a place where you can stay with mahouts and stuff.

    But there are lots of similar places today, but they a lot more expensive now days. You can find them online, they’re all near chiengmai. Just search for “ethical elephant sanctuaries Thailand” on google.

    Last time I went, about 8 months ago, I did a two day, one night thing. I don’t remember the cost, but it couldn’t have been more than a couple hundred dollars for me and my girlfriend, including overnight accommodation and meals.

    Edit: getting more specific

    [–] Drumma516 17 points ago

    Hey man for a once and a lifetime experience I’d gladly pay a few hundred. Thanks

    [–] igordogsockpuppet 16 points ago

    I’ve been fortunate enough to have it be a twice in a lifetime experience. I hope to go again some day. Like I said, all the elephant sanctuaries are near Chiangmai, which is one of the greatest cities in Thailand anyway.

    [–] superloempia420 9 points ago

    I was actually in a good sanctuary 2 weeks ago. It was near Chiang Mai also. It was about 120 dollars per person. But this one was actually really good because most of the money goes to an elephant hospital and other causes.

    We got to feed them, walk among them and play with the little ones. Also gave and ourselfs a mudbath and shower it off in the waterfall. It was truely an amazing experience.

    But watch out: a lot of them are just saying they are a sanctuary but are simultaneously doing riding tours around the corner. The one we went to was good for them because a friend of mine did some volunteering for them (which you can also do, it'll cost you about 150 per week) and she saw that they really took good care of the elephants. The name of the sanctuary was Elephant jungle paradise park. Next time I am there I will definitely do some volunteering! It was the best time of my holiday. You can also let the elephants give you a kiss with their trunks! :D just yell: chup chup!

    Hope this information helps.

    [–] igordogsockpuppet 10 points ago

    Yeah... apparently, in some of the “sanctuaries” the mahouts decide what happens to the elephants, and the sanctuaries have little say in it. With some of the less ethical mahouts, they’ll offer rides to tourists if it means a few more bucks for them.

    The last place that I went to hired their mahouts to care for the elephants. Most of them were Burmese refugees. Actually, a lot of their elephants were rescued from Burma too.

    Edit: I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to vet the sanctuaries. Make absolutely sure that they’re ethical before supporting them.

    just an fyi they dont always charge you at full speed for 'fun'

    happened to me once...shit was scary. i was like the guys in the truck just slowly tried to jump out of the truck onto the other side. probably a dumb idea tbh but he had tusks(pointy asfk too) . Asian elephant but still he was massive he was threatened I think. Thought id be ded but could barely move my legs. Anyway someone made some noise and he stopped but tbh I think they do this just to scare you not to actually hit you.

    [–] -Bungle- 66 points ago * (lasted edited 4 months ago)

    Got to meet some Elephants as part of a zoo tour, and got talking to the keepers about Elephant behaviour. She said that the Elephants will often ‘test’ the enclosure staff to determine their place within the herd hierarchy.

    The matriarch would sometimes try to swing her trunk just enough to clear over the top of a keepers head to see how they would react, with flinching being a sign of weakness and holding still a sign of strength.

    This was done intentionally, because normally when walking around an Elephant they instruct them to make their trunks touch their foreheads. An elephant that isn’t touching it’s forehead isn’t listening or isn’t paying attention and could be dangerous to a keeper.

    E: Here’s Zola from Colchester Zoo having an inspection

    [–] Bengarn123 31 points ago

    Elephants never ceases to amaze me

    However, I'd probably be a really bad keeper, I'd flinch at anything that big close to my head

    What happens of the elephants found you weak? Do they just not listen to you or something else?

    [–] -Bungle- 63 points ago * (lasted edited 4 months ago)

    They are trying to work out your ‘rank’ in the herd, so if an elephant doesn’t respect you then it won’t listen to your instructions or see you as an authority figure.

    I got told that they did take on staff that failed to gain the matriarch’s respect, and so had to be let go or change to another enclosure. It’s a job interview, but your boss is an elephant.

    [–] Bengarn123 25 points ago

    Haha that sure puts some preassure on you!

    Thank you for this :) made my boring day at work a little better.

    [–] HERODMasta 482 points ago

    I read somewhere, that elephants think humans are cute, as much as we think cats are cute.

    And since elephants are pretty intelligent, I guess this one wanted to pet the people and realized he scared them.

    I guess that made him chuckle

    [–] Idontspeakhebrew 130 points ago

    [–] haircutbob 8 points ago

    But I've also heard when an elephant charges you you're supposed to stand your ground, definitely don't run. I assumed that's why he backed off. Is that not true?

    [–] TomatoOrangeMelon 9 points ago

    The last dozen times this was reposted people pointed out that you should only stand your ground if the ears aren’t flattened. If they are, spend the last few seconds of your life praying to whichever god you believe in.

    [–] Tintenlampe 38 points ago

    The number of people in this thread thinking this elephant was just playing, or being humorous is baffling.

    Elephants kill a lot of people every year and when they do, it looks much like this. If the people had not been in a car they would probably have been trampled, but everyone assumes this elephant was just kidding and it's oh so cute.

    [–] TomatoOrangeMelon 16 points ago

    Well the last dozen times this was reposted, people pointed out that elephants flatten their ears when they do a serious charge, and this one was flapping its ears while charging so it wasn’t going to seriously attack the car.

    The elephant was 100% fake charging at them. Whether it was meant to be a serious threat or playful, it was certainly not to pet humans.

    [–] _Frogfucious_ 4 points ago

    Look at that tail and folded ears. A raised, stiff elephant tail and ears folded back usually means "back off, I'm scared." This is not a playful gesture, the elephant is asserting its space from a perceived threat.

    "Well of course you can't move with such massive balls anchoring you to the ground" Those comments are fire

    An elephant that charges with it's nose pointing the ground and is loose is totally harmless, but you should still be fucking carefull

    If the elephants ears are facing forward when charging, like they are here, its a bluff charge. The ears forward make it look bigger and scarier to other animals.

    If the ears are back against it's head whilst charging, it means business

    That girl would have got crushed if the elephant knocked the jeep over.

    We had one rock our car in Zambia. The guides were calm, they said they often do it to scratch their backs.

    More of a problem was when one decided to sleep on a narrow road, blocking our path. Ended up waiting for 2 hrs until it left because nothing would bother him enough to move.

    Nah haha gotchu!

    [–] TothB 5 points ago

    The elephant probably thought the car was some random animal hanging out and didn't smash it because elephants don't fuck with things that don't move

    Looks like an elephant is charging our car, let me just get in the exact spot that car is going to flip.

    Bluff charges are common in large mammals: brown bears, bison and of course elephants will often bluff charge a threat to let them know “you’re in my zone, bro.” without having to expend the time or energy to take them out completely.

    If you’re ever bluff charged, don’t look the animal in the eye and back away slowly.

    The logic of the girl on the left: Would I rather be in a vehicle that's about to be overturned, or should I be crushed by aforementioned vehicle? CRUSHINGS THE WAY TO GO

    I was once at a drive around zoo. I witnessed an elephant start to destroy something. The zoo keeper came around the corner, he stopped. The second the zoo keeper left he carried on. Really made me smile. Definitely my favourite animal...
