Not the Same in the Brain

All these circus elephants are Asian elephants except for the African elephant up front.

I am told with elephants, it's like the difference between dogs and wolves as far as training is concerned.  There are no wolves in the circus.

And every trained circus elephant is a female. Males are only used for breeding.
We have good friends who are elephant trainers. They have also told us that the Asian elephants are not as emotional and moody as the African elephants.
