I loved this!



Although at the end did the Mom ask the little girl if she had ridden on the baby elephant??? Ghaaa!

Hi, the video wouldn't buffer but I could see the still of the beautiful baby on the sand. sooo cute. the audio worked so I listened. Elephants charm me and i understand they're incredibly smart & devoted. I always hate to hear about the "rogue" situations which are probably caused by mistreatment.

Pat said...

This brought a smile to my face this morning! Thanks for that!

Nancy said...

California - I agree with the "rogue" situations. They are such magnificent animals and are having such a hard time. We "adopted" two elephants for the year through Elephant Nature Foundation in Thailand. They are very dear to my heart.

Pat - You usually bring a smile to mine - happy to oblige!

Trish and Rob MacGregor said...

Wow. May your journey be filled with joy, little elephant!

Brian Miller said...

that was awesome...

DJan said...

That little guy is adorable. I too hope he will have a wonderful life. Thank you for sharing the video, Nancy.

The Good Cook said...

I am wondering where its mother is.... poor baby. Poor us as we continue to exploit the beauty that is nature and is our children's inheritance.

(sorry - I am feeling morose today)

Nancy said...

Trish - I know!

Brian - Is there anything cuter than a baby elle?

DJan - We can all send him lots of love...

Good Cook - His mahout seemed tender with him... hope you feel better soon.

Lori said...

So sweet...must show my little's this tomorrow.

Nancy said...

Lori - Babies always enjoy babies, don't they? :-)

Hilary said...

Oh what a darling creature. That wave good-bye was just too cute for words. What a happy looking little(?) guy. Thank you so much for sharing this.

Nancy said...

Hilary - I just LOVED that little wave.

ds said...

I have to admit, I was worried for a while there; that he wasn't able to get up, that he had sand in his eye...But his "wave" at the end is priceless. May he have a long and happy life.

Nancy said...

ds - Indeed! I am still a little worried about that sand in his eye.

oh, how absolutely precious! i've such an affinity for elephants - just love them! they are such gentle spirits! i know, like good cook, was wondering where his mommy was - actually, my grandson is here and i showed him the video and we both said at the same time "oh, where's his mommy!!" - in any event, yes, his caretaker did seem gentle which i was happy for - and i, too, wish him peace love and happiness and a long wonderful life!! hugs baby elle!!!

Beautiful baby, working already, when we do this to kids there's a public outcry.
