WILD ELEPHANT GIVES BIRTH AT ULUSABA

With our computer being reinstalled I am having to save my bookmarks again! Thankfully I remember everyone's blog address. I went to Spinning Babies to mark it and noticed they have a blog. Looks like it will be a good read. Well I saw a post for an elephant birth on video. You have to watch it! It is beautiful. The kids loved it. I am so thankful for dsl and the ability to actually see it!

Video

I might have to try kicking or swinging my leg next time in birth. Amazing that the male elephant comes up and comforts her. Like gives her a drink. They entwine their trunks together. All the elephants are around while she labors. Even the small elephants. I wonder if they are her other young ones or just young ones in the herd.

Just amazing!!!

Wow. It is amazing how the other elephants stay around for support...and maybe also to ward off hostile animals. I love his little white feet. :)
