The video below features a rare daytime footage of a wild elephant giving birth at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT) in Chobi National Park, Botswana. It was recorded by Christian and Ginette Leroy. You have probably seen many animal births before, but none of them come close to this one. Wait till you see what this jaw-dropping video shares.
Mama elephant gave birth to her little calf in peace. But soon after the delivery, her happy herd joined in to celebrate the birth of their newest member. They are eager to protect and guard this tiny little guy as they gently lift him off the ground with their trunks. It is amazing to see how much love and support these beautiful creatures have amongst each other, isn’t it?
