They took an elephant dung ball and hollowed it, put a mouse inside, tied a string with the ball dung and hid it in the bushes. When the elephants came closer, they yanked the string which exposed the mouse to the elephant. Being a large animal it was expected the elephants won’t notice the little guy. But they didn’t only notice but stopped immediately and tiptoed around the mouse. Same experiment was carried out again without the mouse inside, and the elephants didn’t even notice why the dung ball moved by itself.
