In the following video, Lions circle in on a trapped baby elephant until help shows up! And guess who saves the day?!
Elephants are the gentle giants we all know and love – but it seems baby elephants are even better (and cuter). The following video just proves once again that nature is amazing, and that elephants are actually very gentle, loyal creatures.
In the new video that surfaced online, a baby elephant is seen trapped in a water trough. As Lions wait around, ready to snatch up the ‘easy meal’ – his mother starts to panic before a family of elephants comes charging in ready to save the day! The elephant family keeps an eye on the Lions nearby, and eventually helps free the baby elephant.
You just can’t make this stuff up.
For all the elephant-lovers out there, make sure you also watch: This elephant showing a rhino who’s boss as well as this video of elephants throwing things at rhinos.
As previously reported, television host, Ellen DeGeneres announced a new campaign to raise money for elephant conservation.
DeGeneres went on to post an image on Twitter with an elephant head and the hashtag #BeKindToElephants, prompting Twitter users to retweet the message. She also vowed to make a donation to The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust for every retweet.
However, she upped her game on 20 November by tweeting a picture of a t-shirt with an elephant design, saying: “You can support elephants with this new ED by Ellen T-shirt. All of the net profits go to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.”

Ellen decided to do this after President Donald Trump loosened restrictions on importing and bringing back elephant trophies from Zambia and Zimbabwe to the U.S.
She said: “I love elephants. And if you take the time to learn about elephants, you would love them too. Elephants show compassion, sympathy, social intelligence, self-awareness. They’re excellent at learning abilities, all the things I have yet to see in this president.”
