Cerebral cortex[ edit ] The elephant both Asian and African has a very large and highly complex neocortexa trait also shared by humansother apes and certain dolphin species. Asian elephants have the greatest volume of cerebral cortex available for cognitive processing of all existing land animals.
Elephants have a volume of cerebral cortex available for cognitive processing that exceeds that of any primate species, with one study suggesting elephants be placed in the category of great apes in terms of cognitive abilities for tool use and tool making.

Cynthia Mossan ethologist specialising in elephants, recalls an event involving a family of African elephants. Two members of the family were shot by poachers, who were subsequently chased off by the remaining elephants.
Although one of the elephants died, the other, named Tina, remained standing, but with knees beginning to give way. Eventually, Tina grew so weak, she fell to the ground and died. However, Trista and Teresia did not give up but continually tried to lift her. They managed to get Tina into a sitting position, but her body was lifeless and fell to the ground again.
As she did so, her right tusk broke completely off, right up to the lip and nerve cavity. The elephants gave up trying to lift Tina but did not leave her; instead, they began to bury her in a shallow grave and throw leaves over her body.
They stood over Tina for the night and then began to leave in the morning. The last to leave was Teresia. Cynthia Moss has observed a mother, after the death of her calf, walk sluggishly at the back of a family for many days.
