In a video that has made everyone go ‘aaww’, a mother elephant uses her trunk to push other elephants away and her baby out of a mud pit. According to the HuffPost:
When an adorable elephant calf got stuck in a waterhole, her mother was right by her side, scooping and pushing her out of the muddy ditch. And when other elephants tried to assist, the mother pushed them right out of the way and handled the ordeal herself. This mother elephant definitely deserves a round of applause.
This amazing footage was captured in the Addo Elephant National Park, located in the Eastern Cape region of South Africa. It’s the third largest national park in South Africa and is home to a wide range of animals, including lions, black rhinos and zebras.
