Christmas Cuties

Wishing all of our friends here at de Wets Wild a blessed Christmas from Addo Elephant National Park!

Today’s sequence shows two baby elephants sharing a Christmas morning nap. The smallest of the two really struggled to get back up when it was time to start moving with the herd again. Certainly one of the cutest things we’ve ever seen in South Africa’s wild places!

    Big babies can be very cute. I like to see wild animal mothers and their babies, you can see the love and care the mothers take with their young. No one can tell me animals don’t feel love. I know you had a glorious Christmas in one of SA’s loveliest wild places!
