This handout photo provided by the University of Sussex, taken in April 2011, shows a wild elephant in Amboseli National Park in Kenya reacting to sound played by scientists in experiments that show they can distinguish between human languages and genders.

This is an advanced thinking skill that no other non-human animal have demonstrated, scientists say. (AP Photo/Graeme Shannon, University of Sussex)
