Hui-mang, which means “Hope”, is a lucky little one. The baby elephant fell into water and her mother and grandmother rushed in to rescue her. The video is from a zoo surveillance camera, and shows another family member in the background pacing with concern.
This video is yet more proof of the social nature of elephants, the importance of familial relationships, and their intelligence.
It is also a good visual of why humans have long felt a kinship with the animals.
