The Adventures of Moyo the Rescued Baby Elephant

YouTube Link

The Zimbabwe Elephant Nursery near Harare, Zimbabwe rescued the baby elephant seen in these videos, who was found in February, 2014 abandoned by his herd. The calf, named Moyo, was brought to the nursery after a search for his herd was unsuccessful. The staff at the elephant nursery suspect that, judging by his extremely low weight when found, Moyo was born premature and wasn't physically able to keep the pace of his herd, which would have been pressured by poachers.

Since his rescue, Moyo has made friends with the nursery staff, as well as with the baby warthog in the video above. The video below shows various adorable clips of Moyo's adventures at the nursery, where he's said to be thriving, happy and loved by many. -Via Tastefully Offensive
