Bebeh Elephants – It’s Very Simple

We start with the trunkette, then we have the ear floppage,

and the droopy drawers, the very tiny tailio to blorpular body ratio, and of course DA FEETS. That’s all. That’s eet.

And that makes peeps very happy.

“3-week-old Asian elephant calf, “Priya” with her mother, “Ellie” at the Saint Louis Zoo.” -Christy C.
“In the early hours of the morning on March 4, 2014, 18-year-old Noorjahan, one of Twycross Zoo’s four Asian Elephants, gave birth to a healthy female calf after a hefty 22-month long pregnancy! The young calf has yet to receive a name, but is now on view to the public with the rest of the elephant herd.” Via Zooborns.
