Heartwarming Moment: Baby Elephant’s First Steps Stir Motherly Concern

In the wild, witnessing the birth of a baby elephant is a breathtaking experience. These young calves are the epitome of cuteness, but like all newborns, they sometimes need a helping hand – or, in this case, a helping trunk – to take their initial steps into the world.

In a touching video captured by Brett Marneweck, we see a baby elephant struggling to maintain its balance as it repeatedly topples over during its first attempts at walking.
