    New Delhi (Sputnik): As large as they are, the largest living land mammal species in the world – elephants - are known to have an emotional side to their otherwise intimidating personalities.

    On Monday, a video went viral on social networking platforms in India showing how a mother elephant thanked a group of people after they rescued her baby from a deep jungle pit.

    The two-minute video, showing a mama-elephant saluting humans in gratitude with her trunk up-high near a waterfall, was posted on Twitter by Indian Forest Service (IFS) officer Parveen Kaswan.

    In the caption, Kaswan also explained how it is typical behaviour for elephants to first try to rescue on their own and upon failure, stand afar and seek help from humans.

    The video evoked an overwhelming responses from netizens.
