And then there are the Asian elephants in China who have moved 300 miles north -- in China -- and are still on the move  today (2021). They supposedly have their own video channel! I haven't found the video channel, but you can find them on YouTube.

(I've been a day or more late for a while now, but I hope to catch up to Classic Categories at some point.)
