A video showing the whole elephant herd running to greet a rescue baby elephant is going viral, and for obvious reasons. The short clip filmed at Elephant Nature Park shows 1 year and 9-months-old orphan elephant Dok Gaew who receives the warmest welcome ever. They can surely teach us a thing or two about friendliness, empathy, and co-existing in peace.
These wonderful creatures are known for their gentle nature and enormous physical strength. They are matriarchal, i.e. females are the ones who run the world in the elephant kingdom. Oh, and they are herbivores, which means they don’t kill for food or just because they want to. And did we mention they don’t harm the planet as humans do?
