A female elephant rescues her baby from drowning in Sabah, Borneo. A mother elephant calls on her family to help get her calf up a steep muddy riverbank in Sabah, Borneo on August 3. When it proved too difficult to do alone the mother called on two other females for assistance and between them they got the baby to safety.

There’s a term “elephant mom”, which means that a mother was overprotective of her children. The origin of the term is well justified - female elephants are very nurturing and protective of their young.

The motherly instinct in elephants is so strong, that other females in a herd have been known to rally to the aid of a mother to protect her calf. The elephant mom are quick to intervene whenever their babies are in any kind of danger.
