Baby Elephant Encounter
Megan Mayer 12/30/2015
Katie Slovan was traveling in Chiang Mai, Thailand, when a one-month-old baby elephant came up to her and her group. Right away its adorable antics had them all laughing.
The little elephant crawled over one man before making its way to Katie. She opens her legs as someone says that’s where the babies like to stay, but before it moves into her lap the elephant touches her face with its trunk and seems to give her a sort of kiss. Now it seems to want to move into her lap, but instead goes to look at the camera phone of the person recording this endearing scene. It trips on Katie’s knee as it makes it way back, yet is barely slowed as it continues to travel across the legs of the others in the group, probably wanting to inspect and snuggle everyone else. What a sweet young elephant, cuddling everyone in the best way it knows how after its one month of life, spreading the love.
