How wonderful that they trust their keepers but notice it said only their former keepers. I suppose that means they don't trust anybody they did not know during their childhood.

That tiny baby still had shaky, trembling legs. She was so cute.

Saw this on PBS last night. "Botswana is home to over one-third of the elephants living in the wild
today, and is one of the few places where these animals can still live out a natural life."

Have you seen this? It's been around for some time but needs to be shared some more. The bond between humans and animals does not exist only with dogs and cats.

^^^Scum indeed. To spend such a large sum of money to show and tell an audience he doesn't
care if the species is in trouble.

I saw this over 15 years ago and was so moved that I bought the VHS tape from PBS as soon
as it was available.
