An incredible video of a family of elephants saving one of their babies.
A family of elephants attempt to cross a river, which was running high and fast due to recent rainfall. It’s heavy enough that the adult elephants are hesitant to cross as well. It takes a bit of time, but the baby elephant gains enough courage to attempt to cross and is quickly swept away. One of the adults goes to the rescue but isn’t able to complete the rescue. After a few tense moments, the matriarch, the largest female in the herd, comes off the river bank to help with the rescue and the little elephant is brought to safety.
It’s incredible to watch as all the elephants feel the anxiety and uncertainty and help the baby when there is need. They are pretty incredible creatures.
