Beyond Words: What Animals Think and Feel

The Maasai both revere and revile elephants. They believe that only humans and elephants have souls. In Maasai culture, brides leaving their home are told never to look back; a human bride did look back, and she became the first elephant. That’s why elephant breasts look like human breasts. Traditionally, when the Maasai encounter the bones of a human or an elephant, they place grass on them to signal respect. This they do with no other animals.
