The bond between an elephant family is not to be underestimated. These dynamic, highly intelligent creatures share many things in common with human beings, one of which being the importance they hold for protecting members of their family. We have seen an elephant mother dig for 11 hours straight to rescue her baby from a well, and another small elephant traverse over 30 miles to find her mother. Elephants might have well as coined the phrase “family first.”

Just take a look at the little herd in this video. Just like good parents, the mother and father of the baby march into traffic as if to say, “Stop please, pedestrians here!” and wait until the coast is clear before they give the signal for their little one to cross. Boy, does this little baby have an entourage! We don’t know about you, but we kind of wish that we could be part of an elephant family
