Baby Elephant Wants to Cuddle (Video)

These elephants live at the Patara Elephant Farm in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

The happy visitors rave that, “The staff and owners at Patara focus solely on the health care and breeding management for these endangered species and aid the recovery process for elephants injured by mine bombs – tourists come second.

“When we arrived, we really had to work hard and learn what it meant to take care of these amazing creatures. This included feeding the elephants their daily meals, inspecting and squeezing out the water from fresh stool, bathing, scrubbing and washing the elephants in the river, and finally exercising the elephants in the jungle.

“It was at the end of our day which we had the unique opportunity to play with a two month old female calf named Tara. As soon as she heard Arthur calling her, she ran over and cuddled with him non-stop. It was an adorable and unforgettable experience.”
