Elephants are possibly the only other mammal besides humans to perform rituals for their dead. While humans hold funerals, elephants have been known to form a sort of line to touch the deceased elephant with their trunks. When all members of the herd have "said their goodbyes", they then bury the dead by placing branches and undergrowth, grass etc ontop of the body.
