A couple on a safari trip in Africa spotted a herd of elephants walking towards a watering hole. It is quite a big family and a lot of them have young ones.

The couple pans the camera around, showing the magnificent gentle giants when they notice one of the baby elephants got stuck in a pool of mud up to his ears and can’t get out. Understandingly, the baby is frightened and starts screaming for his mother.

What happens then will leave everyone is awe! Many of the elephants from the herd that found themselves in the vicinity of the calf, males and females, young and adult, come to the baby’s aid!

The elephants try to pull and push the baby out of the mud, but the baby keeps screaming in fear. That’s when the mother decided to take matters in her own hands. She pushes the rest of the adults aside, kneels on the ground above the mud pool and starts pushing her baby to the side. She twists her trunk like a fist and pushes the screaming baby on the butt until it is finally on dry ground.

Now that is one elephant mom! Super supportive and caring!
