A baby elephant feels protected between his mother's front legs. This was during a visit to the Tsavo East Sheldrick orphanage in Kenya. The mother is an "ex-orphan", that now lives in the wild, and she brought her young baby to the camp, as if she wanted her keepers to see how successful their work is.
