A whole herd
Wow, i'm so fascinated. A herd of about 17 elephants went to Petes Pond... Big giant ones, middle sized, babies...and a new baby, for sure. So new, he was still figuring out how to walk, how to use his trunk in the water (didn't...he dippped his mouth into the water instead) He fell a few times and got stuck, and mom came by to help him out. Used the trunk to give him a nudge...and a couple more tries and up he got. SO Cute... I love watching the "family" dynamics that they seem to have. Mother's nurturing transcends throughout the species.
