Poor Elephant was Quickly Losing Weight – They Finally Found the Reason

I am sure you have gone through many kinds of bodily pain in your life. Toothaches are one of the worst, aren’t they? And as it turns out, humans are not the only creatures in the world that can feel that kind of discomfort.

For example, take a look at this beautiful elephant featured in the video below. Lucha is a 33-year-old Asian elephant that lives at the ZSL Whipsnade Zoo in England. Zookeepers noticed that she was not eating her food and was losing weight pretty fast.

They tried to figure out the problem behind it. When they looked inside her mouth, they saw that Lucha had a major tooth infection.
