Elephant Calf's Amazing Rescue From Flooded River
Six month old baby elephant decides it is his or her turn to take the plunge when a heavy current
sweeps the sweet calf down stream. One courageous elephant elder tries his or her best
to save the calf from being swept away but cannot do it alone against
the powerful waters.
Elephants save a calf pulled by powerful river currents.
Elephants are herbivorous and can be found in different habitats including savannahs, forests, deserts and marshes.,
They prefer to stay near water. They are considered to be keystone species due to their impact on their environments.
Other animals tend to keep their distance, predators such as lions, tigers, hyenas and wild dogs usually target only
the young elephants (or "calves"). Females ("cows") tend to live in family groups, which can consist
of one female with her calves or several related females with offspring. The groups are led by an individual
known as the matriarch, often the oldest cow. Elephants have a fission-fusion society in which
multiple family groups come together to socialise. Males ("bulls") leave their family groups when they reach puberty,
and may live alone or with other males.

“Elephants love reunions. They recognize one another after years and years of separation
and greet each other with wild, boisterous joy.
There's bellowing and trumpeting, ear flapping and rubbing. Trunks entwine.”
