Animals are much smarter than most people give them credit for. When disaster struck within this herd of elephants, they didn’t act helpless. Instead, the adults elephants proved just how intelligent and caring they are. A tiny elephant calf attempted to cross the swollen Ewaso Nyiro in Kenya, but it proved to be too much for the little guy. The youngster was submerged in the swift current, but thanks to some quick thinking of his mom, wasn’t swept downstream.
The little calf thought it would be okay to cross…
But the water was too high for the little one.
He was caught up in the current almost immediately.
But mom was there to save the day.
To see mom’s heroics in action, watch the video below. It’s hard to believe that these magnificent creatures are this intelligent. Absolutely amazing.
(H/T Daily Mail) It’s about time more people realize that animals have thoughts and feelings, too. This video proves that this elephant mother definitely does. She was horrified to see her baby in trouble and would do anything to save him. Share her awesome save with others!
