The young elephant keeps grabbing at the girl’s face with his own trunk, recognizing that a trunk should be right around where her nose is, but the little guy is not getting anywhere, much to the delight of everyone who gets to watch this insanely cute interaction.
You might be wondering why he’s trying so desperately to find her trunk.
An elephant’s trunk is one of the most vital tools they use in social behavior. When a baby elephant is just new and entering the world, a mother will wrap her trunk around her baby to protect it. Then as they grow older, elephants use their trunks to touch, explore their environment, touch each other, and embrace.
This video captures the beauty of human to animal interaction in such ridiculously cute way that it’s impossible not be grinning from ear to ear after watching it. Enjoy.
