Elephants See Us As Puppies

How...cute?

As with just about any claim made today, take this one with a grain of salt since it's not quite proven: elephants see humans much like humans see puppies, according to some research. This is due to the fact that their brains behave like our brains behave when we see puppies, giving scientists cause to think the reaction is the same.

Like most claims, it's not a perfect one with plenty of variables possible, but it is fun to think that is how elephants view humans. If we are puppies to elephants, of course, it makes you wonder how they view us when we rescue them--or worse, when we are cruel.
