Elephants are some of the most amazing species on the planet. They are incredibly intelligent and emotional. Not only are they capable of love, but they mourn lost friends and family just like humans do. In fact, there are many things about elephants that make them pretty similar to humans. Don’t believe us? Just check out this footage.
This baby elephant is really small and is barely able to use his trunk, but he’s got an attitude that is strikingly similar to that of a human toddler. This little one thinks he’s calling the shots … well, just as long as he’s got mom to back him up!
Seeing these babies play and stumble over one another while learning the ropes of what is means to be an elephant is sure to bring a smile to your face. These elephants are lucky in that they have the chance to grow up in their natural environment, surrounded by their families – unfortunately, this isn’t always the case for baby elephants.
More than anything, this video proves that elephants are just as deserving of respect and love as any other creature (humans included). We can all play our part to make sure elephants grow up in their wild homes by refusing to pay to see them in captivity.
