Elephants are believed to be exceptionally smart animals, and not just for their famously long memories. According to Science Focus, these large animals have complex mental maps and can solve problems like piling up blocks to reach food and using branches and rocks as tools. A video going viral online shows one elephant using his problem solving skills to cross an electric fence

I read a story some years ago where 2 bull elephants forced a young male right through an electric fence and followed it right through.

They, like many other animals, are surprisingly intelligent.

If they were really smart, they’d wait for dark when the solar energy dropped to zero on the fence.

There’s videos on YT showing how good they are at painting amazing pictures, too.

It’s not the elephant you have to worry about getting over the fence...

That elephant was not only smart enough to pull down the fence by the post but also to step between the wires.

Well done. I wonder if he can train other elephants to do the same thing.
