Elephants are well-known for their intelligence, close family ties and social complexity. A typical elephant family is led by the oldest female, the “matriarch”, and is comprised of a group of related females and their young. Elephants develop strong, intimate bonds between friends and family members. Female elephants look after each other’s calves and even older calves learn how to 'babysit' younger siblings or cousins. Elephant family groups are very close. While they can’t exactly hug each other, elephants wrap their trunks around younger relatives to reassure them, and twine their trunks together when greeting one another.
