Cape Town - The memory of an elephant is said to be legendary - especially when it is in dangerous situations - with the animal storing up these experiences in order to make crucial survival decisions later on in life. If this is true, a near-drowning experience for this baby elephant, captured on video in Kenya's Ol Pejeta wildlife Conservancy, will surely stay with it forever.Watch the video here. The video details the astounding dynamics of an elephant herd and how the largest land mammals on earth are able to show a range of emotional patterns. An elephant never forgets!It might seem like an exaggeration, but there is more truth to this saying than meets the eye. Since elephants can live to be 60-years-old it depends on its memory for survival. Their ability to recognise and remember fellow elephants is detailed in its behavior - matriarchs will often huddle in a defensive position when confronted with an unfamiliar elephant that could pose a threat to the herd and some even grieve over dead herd members.Had any close encounters with animals lately?
