For as long as humans have been on earth, we have respected, deified, and worshipped animals. We celebrate their sacred powers and meaning, in rituals and festivities that continue to this day. Travel with us around the globe as we explore and explain our spiritual connection with elephants and camels. The Hindus, for example, worship the elephant-headed god Ganesh. And the Bedouin of Arabia believe the camel is a divine gift.
