    A mother's determination: Elephant rescues baby trapped in mud "I saw the older baby elephant and the mother cross the watering hole with no problems. But the younger one started to slither because of the mud," Cano told Rex USA. The male baby elephant was unable to climb up the slippery bank and started to slide down. That's when mom sprang into action.

    This month-old calf - young male needed a helping hand from his concerned mother to escape the sticky mud after wading knee deep into the quagmire. She swiftly, if not elegantly, plucked the inexperienced baby to safety by his tail.

    A mother struggles to save her son. (Marina Cano / Solent News via Rex USA) Elephants are so selfless...and they mourn for their dead family members (even carry their bones around with them...they may have gone long distances but recognize their family's bones!) for a while. It's so sad to see, but fascinating, too. :(

Look at that sweet little baby face! Even though Mama could probably stomp you into a grease spot in the snow, she looks sweet, too.

seeing baby animals in the wild is very poignant - their short time with Mama is the only kindness they will know. The rest of their life will be filled with the horror of living in the wild - constantly killing or being killed, tearing their living food to death.
