In celebration of Elephant Appreciation Day, a holiday declared in 1996, w're turning our attention to the animal kingdom's largest creature. They say an elephant never forgets, and it's true: Their brains weigh 10 to 11 pounds, and their hippocampus, where memory is stored, is likewise exceptionally large. Elephants are also social, family-oriented, matriarchal, gentle, and remarkably quick and nimble, despite their size. In other words, they are awesome. So why not introduce a little elephant into your home? Scroll below to shop some of our favorite elephant finds.
