Baby Elephant Needs Encouragement from Family to Cross the Road

YouTube Link

This adorable elephant calf seems afraid to cross the road. The adults with him (presumably one or both of his parents) gently and lovingly nudge him forward with their trunks and forelegs. The footage was captured in Ngorongoro Conservation Area in Tanzania. -Via Arbroath

Thanks for posting this. However, the two adults are almost definitely both female. Male elephants generally only mix with herds to mate. Once that's over, they split. So, the two adults in the video are likely 1) the baby's mother and 2) another related female, like a sister, aunt, or cousin.
