Elephants are one of the largest animals on Earth. They are gentle, calm, peaceful and slow giants that can weigh from 6,000 to 20,000 pounds. How can they be afraid of something, when logically they can stomp over it with their big feet? As it seems they definitely have some fears.

You can say that elephants are afraid of mice, like we have been taught by cartoons all our lives, but as it turns out, this baby elephant got terrified and ran for his life after seeing a baby goat! Meeting somebody for the first time can be scary, especially if you are just a child.

Clearly, this is the calf's first encounter with a goat and it is only logical for it to be confused and therefore scared. The small elephant comes close to the visitors, thinking there is something interesting to see. The curious little one turns a corner around the fence post and spots a small goat staring back at him. His jaw drops and he lets out a scary shriek of horror. The little black goat must have seemed very spooky, with its horns and tiny tail...

Both of them, the baby elephant and the baby goat, immediately retreat. The goat few steps back, while the funny elephant is running to his mom seeking protection. That is his natural instinct, especially when mom weighs thousands of pounds!

But the question still remains "Why were these two afraid of each other?" It is hard to say.

Whatever the reason was, hopefully these two eventually got used to each other and maybe even became friends.
