Living in an open enclosure equipped with a small pond, the elephant mother constantly keeps her babies close – an inherent maternal instinct that further endears her to observers.

They spend their days basking in the sunshine, grazing on the enclosure’s grass, their every move drawing fascination from onlookers. However, their journey into learning how to graze is just beginning.
