We all know that elephants have great memories, especially if we compare them to those of other animals. But you may ask why these giants remember so well? The answer lies in the way their brains are structured, which is very similar to those of humans, with a large frontal lobe. Relative to other animals, they have the largest brain capacity.
Not only do they remember the pathways they have travelled throughout their 60-odd years to find food, but they also remember faces of people and other elephants they have met. But scientists believe that elephants do forget sometimes, and mostly remember things that help them survive.
