Like Mama, Like Baby

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Kristine Dong

This mama elephant was snacking on some bark (for nutrients) when her baby came over to copy her. Since the baby couldn't really work its trunk, it just moved it around mimicking the movements. It was just a stroke of luck that the bark on the tree was in the shape of a heart.

Location: Londolozi, Mpumalanga, South Africa
