Elephants are recognized as one of the most intelligent species on Earth. Check out this surprising and inspiring elephant behavior recently caught on film.
Elephants are widely recognized as being very intelligent and are often trained to complete simple tasks, so the elephant behavior displayed in this video is well within the realm of possibility.
The question remains though: is this video a real display of inspiring behavior on part of the elephant or an elaborate fake?

Though the video appears to my untrained eye to be real, it's unclear exactly where it was filmed and it is also unknown whether or not this is a wild or tame elephant.
The message of the video is clear though, and it's a good one to listen to: don't litter.
Regardless of the authenticity of the video, I think it is an impressive feat.
I really wish I had the ability to pick up and move an object using nothing but my nose and foot.
