Baby elephant too scared to take a step.
|About||1 week ago|
My fucking god I love baby elephants. I'm gonna buy one someday I don't care if it's illegal.
Can someone play this over the song Baby Elephant Walk?
I ... it's not ... it's lower ... no. ummm can I just ... wait ... oh. *baby thump-thump* ok. I'm good."
"No ngunna faw!"
Aaah bless his little heart. Why didn’t someone help him?
I cheered when it took that step! Lol!
I will make it legal.
Why not get two or three or more
Its not really fair to just have one because they are so social. Clearly you need to get a bunch of them.
We think they are cute like puppies, they think we are cute like puppies.
...and the Jedi?
The Chancellor should never have brought them into this. Kill them immediately.
I was thinking this entire comment word for word. +2
This is getting out of hand. Now there are two of them.
Good luck with the feeding costs. Plus property damage costs. Living space costs. Acclimatation costs. Essentially, say goodby to money.
Oh, the law will be the least of your worries...you'll be bankrupt through the 150 to 300Kg of food they require...daily.
Got baby elephant, don’t care
Yes, let's try and help lift/push the 300lbs creature
I thought the lady was going to do the same thing after
Deal. @solomonlusk for president!
Just don’t talk about it.
It'll help him learn if he does it all by himself :)
Elephants don’t like to step down if they can’t touch the ground with their trunk. So sweet!
Sorry to ruin the flow but I fucking love where this conversation went.
Need to put it in a room first.
There's always a bigger fish.
If I'm not mistaken, these are the orphans from the David Sheldrick Trust. The whole purpose of the Trust is to get orphans to learn how 1/?
To be self sufficient elephants and be problem solvers. The keepers that are there, guide them and nurture them, but they have to learn 2/?
How to be elephants.
You're over thinking this mate. It's not a fall in to oblivion, it's a two inch drop.
I think we need to replace the voice in the back of our heads with your voice/logic. World would be a much funner place.
This is so cute
I saw two elephants there
Gimme gimme gimme. I want to hold him and kiss him and forever love him.
Its not really that weird, imagine you can't see where your stepping and the only thing you can tell is that the ground is not in reach
If I weighed 300 pubds I'd be afraid too
How could someone have helped him?
Good grief my comment was taken way too seriously, mainly by people who don’t know how to help animals I guess.
Help. Not carry. Try it.
But here is the point. A little encouragement might help. That is how most beings learn.
I mean ... that is surely an exaggeration, right? Baby elephants can't possibly eat 1.5-3 times their body weight per day can they?
Okay, the numbers I gave are for adult elephants, but babies grow up you know...
But ... but ... can we keep them small forever, instead? (Small being relative to 90KG here).
Well they're around 100kg AT BIRTH, so...good luck with that.
Like how the other elephant and the keeper would have gone down the step first, so the little one sees its safe?
A newborn elephant normally weighs between 200 to 268 pounds (90-121 kg) according to "ZooBorns", so I'll just take a small one!
I've never ate elephant....wonder if they go well with a beer
Return those elephants to their mother immediately!
Anyone else hearing the walk of the baby elephant song in their head
I hope they aren't training them to be ridden - where's their mom? Often times trainers steal baby elephants from their moms in the wild
It's an orphan.
Orphans being raised by keepers I'm guessing
Invest in a breeding small elephants business. People make small dogs and cats. Might as well do it with elephants
I think if you put them in a small glads jar it’ll halt their growth.
Says the imgurian with « ivory » in nickname..
I like your thinking! We can just keep 'em locked up for a little while until they decide they're fine that size and stop growing!
Oh man, domesticated tiny elephants would be a game changer! Cute, cuddly and they have a trunk to grab things! Never forget this idea!
I actually have a story to go with my name :)
I always upvote baby elephants
"Are you sure this is sanitary? Seems questionable to meeeee!"
Bless his little heart
You've picked my curiousity, Ivory!
Exactly! Like those square kittens in a jar!
Perfect! This will make us millions!
And we could charge an extra 0.005 cent on each dollar spent towards a bonzai elephant and then make several more millions! Damn. So easy.
Oh, man, we could upcharge a special service to trim the elephants bonsai style to keep them the right size!
Maybe we should meet up and become partners in a company, we could rule the world.
I fear if we did the Illuminati might be forced to act against us, lest we become too powerful.
