I love elephants and find lots of stories and pictures to share but now I think I will limit elephant-themed posts to this thread. I hope others will join me in sharing what you find here as well.


Elephants caught drinking with their Boys Club.

BAILEY...The first video was so much fun and happy. all kids like to play in water.
The 2nd one was sad. I can only imagine how panicked mama and auntie elephants get when a young one is trapped in mud or a well. So happy the baby got out OK. Many thanks for sharing your finds.
