You don't often come across funny elephant videos like this one, and as soon as you watch it, you'll know what we mean! Namely, guy catches rare sight of a very hungry elephant casually walking near pick-up truck, and as soon as it realizes there can be food inside, it curiously swipes the bed topper off and grabs some food! Just how genius is this, right? Poor elephant, who knows when was his last meal. it surely looks really hungry! But you gotta admit, its sense of smell is really amazing! It wasn't such a wild guess that the truck was full of food!

Elephants belong to the family Elephantidae, the sole remaining family within the order Proboscidea which belongs to the superorder Afrotheria. Their closest extant relatives are the sirenians (dugongs and manatees) and the hyraxes, with which they share the clade Paenungulata within the superorder Afrotheria. Elephants and sirenians are further grouped in the clade Tethytheria. Three species of elephants are recognised; the African bush elephant (Loxodonta africana) and forest elephant (Loxodonta cyclotis) of sub-Saharan Africa, and the Asian elephant (Elephas maximus) of South and Southeast Asia. African elephants have larger ears, a concave back, more wrinkled skin, a sloping abdomen, and two finger-like extensions at the tip of the trunk. Asian elephants have smaller ears, a convex or level back, smoother skin, a horizontal abdomen that occasionally sags in the middle and one extension at the tip of the trunk. The looped ridges on the molars are narrower in the Asian elephant while those of the African are more diamond-shaped. The Asian elephant also has dorsal bumps on its head and some patches of depigmentation on its skin. In general, African elephants are larger than their Asian cousins.
