This elephant video is incredible, leaving little doubt that elephants are the coolest animals on the planet! WOW!
Elephants really are amazing animals, and it seems like they do something to remind us of that all of the time. For example, this herd of elephants continued to use “their” path to a favorite mango tree…despite the fact that a safari lodge had now occupied the trail! The elephant herd matriarch who is named “Wonky Tusk” (duh) led her family comprised of both young and old elephants through the lodge and out to feed on the ripe fruit. She even brought the baby! I’ve been walking with elephants in Africa and the only time I was ever nervous was when there were babies…and we were 50 yards away, not 5 feet! I’ve watched this video twice and still cannot believe it.
Several things jump out as amazing:
- They ignore the staff and guests
- They have not broken anything
- They are calm enough to nap
- They brought a 2-week old calf
Does this story remind anyone else of the classic movie, Elephant Walk? Fortunately for everyone the modern version ending is much better! Although young Elizabeth Taylor! 🙂
I’ve included another elephant book that you might enjoy as it goes well with this ridiculous video. As always all proceeds from these books will be donated to elephant conservation.
