Snuggling Baby Elephants

These Baby Elephants Think They’re Lap Dogs

Baby elephants don’t make good pets, but you’re going to wish they did.

This video from Huffington Post is all over the net, but I couldn’t resist. It makes me chuckle  and remember my hug with an elephant! Here I am making a first move to hug this gentle giant.  Of course the handler is there with his trusty stick, in case she  is not in the hugging mood!  I was glad it  turned out to be  a friendly hug!  I would have loved to had this interaction with baby elephants!


This was a female elephant.  They live in groups with the babies and other females.  The bulls are very fierce and loners, only visiting the females during mating season.  I learned  this in Jaipur that there were only 3 bulls in this area where the elephants are a main draw for tourists.    They  had to be kept  away from each other.
