Happy Elephant Week! Every episode this week answers a different question about our magnificent and ginormous elephant friends. It’s a cartoon tale as old as time. Giant elephant sees a tiny mouse. Eeek! Elephant is frightened, jumps up onto comically small chair. CLASSIC. But what actually happens when an elephant comes across a mouse in the wild? We asked psychology professor and elephant expert Joshua Plotnick to help us find the answer.

Got a jumbo-sized question? Send it to us at BrainsOn.org/contact, and we’ll unpack our trunk full of answers.
