In northern India, where the winters are cold, warm and beautiful sweaters are sewn for the elephants, and the pants were sewn at the Wildlife SOS India Wildlife Conservation Center.
Volunteers spend approximately 4 weeks per sweater as the elephant is the largest land mammal on Earth. Clothes for elephants are not only warm, but also stylish.
Elephants are vulnerable to cold, which can make them sick, such as pneumonia, and cold can also exacerbate arthritis, which is common in these animals, said one of the centre’s founders.
It is reported that while only 3 of the 23 elephants received shiny sweaters, the rest are saved from the cold with simple blankets.
