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.
Everytime I see this elephant and how happy he is ... it reminds me of two things. The joy I felt when Mom said we were going swimming and the joy on my neice's face when she took a bath at two years old. :) Both make me incredibly happy.
