My Life in the Wild: Elephant by Prof Phil Whitfield, Animal Planet

From the earliest moments as a calf being tended by his mother and living in large herds, to learning to laugh and play, using his trunk as a tool to eat, drink and wash, up to developing extensive social contact to become a self sufficient adult, this book follows the entire lifecycle of the fascinating socialized elephant. Endnotes explain the science behind the story and extend the scientific learning.
