Yes, I know I said there would be no more Nandi videos. I was wrong. I was delusional. I have no idea how many more Nandi videos there will be. She’s too cute. She does too many adorable and fascinating things. So as long as the Reid Park Zookeepers keep on putting them out, and I keep on finding them, I suppose I will keep on posting them.
They make me smile. And when they come to my own inbox I always have to watch them repeatedly.
So… I give you yet another video of Nandi. Every morning when her keepers arrive for work, she gets “super-excited” and RUNS full bore for the barn, spinning and sometimes literally bouncing off the walls. Here’s a sample of what her Keepers see every day:
Really. I mean it. This is the last one! In fact, I had no idea I was going to post so many elephant videos, but they’re all just so darned cute. And this one, which includes the entire herd, is not only really well done, but just shows a lot of cool stuff. Like Mabu LYING DOWN in the mud wallow. Wow.
Yes, it’s yet another baby elephant video, but this one is not of our Nandi at the Reid Park Zoo. Instead, it is of an Indian elephant baby at the Zurich zoo, who falls on his back trying to climb onto a ledge. The adults immediately rush to his aid. I was blown away by their speed and the way they worked together…. And the more I’ve watched this the more I think neither of the two was even the baby’s mom, but rather the “aunties.” Mom seems to come up afterward and is the one he ends up standing under when it’s all over.
I love God’s infinitely fascinating and even mind-blowing creation:
This 41 second video was taken within the hour after our local Reid Park Zoo’s baby elephant was born: Mom helping her little one to stand up for the first time. Very cool. This video was shown on CBS News
