Baby Elephant Falling Down

Elephants Have Maternal Instincts Too, and They Will Melt Your Heart

Do you have a few minutes to watch this YouTube video on repeat? It's worth it. Trust us. In it, a little elephant tries to make its way up a rock at the Zurich zoo. But the steps prove too steep, and it falls flat on its butt. Just like you'd expect when a human toddler falls down, the older elephants come rushing to the baby's side to help it up. It's too much to handle. Thank you to Reddit for bringing this to our attention.
