The picture of relaxation, his front legs twitch and he sleeps deeply with his mouth half-open.
His mother, growing tігed of the long nap, walks languidly over to the calf and runs an inquiring trunk over his sleepy body.

Thankfully, zoo keepers are at hand to step in, and one of them gently prods the animal’s backside several times.

Elephants weigh about 250 pounds at birth and ѕtаnd about three feet tall. In the first few weeks they can’t see very well, but they can recognize their mothers by toᴜсһ, scent, and sound.
They very close to their mothers for the first couple of months and drink their mother’s milk – about three gallons of milk a day – for up to two years, sometimes longer.
