Elephant Mom Can't Wake Up Baby, So The Keepers Step In

Rumble When we think of pets, most of the times we only think of dogs and cats and the occasional fish. But in reality, there are so many different kinds of pets that are being kept by people, it’s hard to keep track. Some find pleasure in cuddling next to a large python, some like the thrill of keeping gargantuan spiders in their rooms and others decide to stay true to the furry pets trend and opt for a rabbit or five. Whichever it may be, we can all agree that keeping a pet is the best thing that can happen to you. In this case we have a baby elephant and his mom.

No matter the species, motherly instincts always kick in. Here, a mama Janita, an Indian elephant, tries waking her sleepy baby Maximilian, but to no avail. She becomes more nervous and stressed out the longer he just lies there, but he seems to be dreaming about something fun and is deeply invested in his dream.

It seems it is time for the zookeeper to step in and help. The Prague Zoo employee approaches the calf and nudges it really hard for some time, until it finally breaks its sleep and gets up, easing mama Janita's mind.

Maximilian is the first baby elephant to be conceived and born on the ground of the Prague Zoo in over 80 years. It is Janita's first baby.

“The baby was born in the Elephant Valley, which was opened in 2013. We would not have been able to say these words if the founder had not enabled us to build the Elephant Valley, if the Czech diplomats, headed by Miloslav Stašek, had not helped us get female elephants from Sri Lanka, and, above all, if our team of elephant breeders, led by Pavel Brandl and Jiří Javůrek, had not been able to choose and adhere to the right methods of working with elephants,” said the Director of Prague Zoo, Miroslav Bobek.
