Elephant Calf Charging
Video shows a young elephant calf charging our vehicle and then very quickly realizing that this might not be such a good idea after all.
Not only is he (she?) very cute but he also manages a small jump.
Baby elephant is called a calf and at birth weights about 100kg. The gestation period is 22 months,
when the baby calf is ready to be born the whole herd creates a circle around the cow or the mum that is going
to give birth to protect both her and the baby, once it has been born the elephants will help the baby stand.
Their life span is between 50 to 70 years but the oldest recorded elephant is 82 years old.
Human’s and elephants are very similar in their development they need milk for at least the first two years
of their lives but normally suckle until they are 4 years old.
Females normally produce their first baby at 15 years old.

“They say that somewhere in Africa the elephants have a secret grave where they go to lie down,
unburden their wrinkled gray bodies, and soar away, light spirits at the end.”
