In a heartwarming video, a woman named Lek calls out for elephant Jenny from a distance. Jenny’s response is truly touching as she rushes over with unbridled joy, reminiscent of a child excited to see her mother after a long time apart.
Jenny’s enthusiasm doesn’t end there; she gathers the other nannies in the area, likely to share the joy of reuniting with her adopted little sister, ThongAe.

The bond between these elephants and Lek is heartwarming, leaving her feeling emotionally overwhelmed every time she visits the Elephant Nature Park.
Despite their massive size, elephants are remarkably agile and can run up to 25 miles per hour. Their unique way of walking, always keeping one foot on the ground, allows them to reach such impressive speeds.
Like cats, elephants also exhibit a form of purring, communicating with each other through various sounds, including rumbles, trumpet sounds, snorts, roars, cries, and purring.
These intelligent creatures have strong familial ties, with the matriarch, or the female head of the family, leading the herd.
The entire group contributes to raising the calves, and females often stay with the family herd throughout their lives. In contrast, males usually leave the herd around the age of 12 to live independently.
Elephants’ capacity for compassion and sensitivity is remarkable, much like human beings. When a baby elephant cries, the herd responds with empathy, using their trunks to stroke and comfort the little one.
This display of emotional intelligence reflects the deep emotional lives of these creatures, showcasing their capacity for compassion and self-awareness.
The incredible video of Jenny’s reunion with her adoptive mother is a heartwarming reminder of the profound emotions and bonds that elephants, like us, can experience.
