Without a mother to snuggle up to, this tiny orphan elephant has found the next best thing.The huge grey blanket hung out in the African bush may not be fooling anyone - but for the frightened and lonely orphaned baby, it proves to be the perfect surrogate mother.In order to feed, the tiny baby has to feel something on the end of its trunks to mimic a mother's stomach.And the huge comfort blankets provide that.
Baby elephant's comfort blanket: How huge grey rug doubles as surrogate mother for orphan at feeding time @ David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.
