Heartwarming News: Two rescued baby elephants find love and friendship at Elephant Nature Park, spreading joy.

According to the park’s projects director Ry Emmerson, elephants hug by wrapping their trunks together like humans. This gesture is a sign of love and support, and Chaba and Pyi Mai soon became inseparable.

“They are constantly communicating through vocalizations and touch,” Emmerson said. “The love they show to each other is pure and unconditional. It’s something we can all learn from and so heartwarming to witness.”

Chaba and Pyi Mai were both rescued from tourist attractions that mistreated animals, along with their mothers. Now, they get to live the rest of their lives in a herd, doing all their favorite activities.

Their favorite activity is playing in the mud pit together. “They will often stay in the mud playing for hours with careless abandon,” Emmerson said. And they have developed a reputation around the rescue for their supportive, affectionate, and occasionally lousy relationship.

“We lovingly call them ‘double trouble,'” Emmerson said. “They are inseparable, always playing and getting up to mischief together — just as they should!”
