Just Because an Animal is Big Does not mean it is Braver
Believe it or not, elephants are quite scared of bees. Often, when elephants hear the sound of buzzing, they tend to flee immediately. Not only do they run away, but they also make a 'rumbling' call to warn other elephants. This is their emotional response to a threat. Even though a stinger can't get through their thick skin, the bee can sting the skin around their eyes or go up their trunk.
