Baby elephant adorably searches for girl’s nose

July 9th, 2020

Hilarious videos and animals – these two really go well together. Add in some absolutely heartwarming cuteness and you’ve got footage that’s worth a million, and that’s exactly the case here with a girl and an adorable baby elephant who wants to say hi.

There’s just something special about seeing baby animals interact with humans, and this is no different.

When a baby elephant encountered this girl, it was probably the first time that the majestic animal came across a human. That’s why he kept looking for an elephant nose that wasn’t there!

Of course, it must’ve been quite the surprising sight for this baby elephant. After all, this woman walked right in the environment he’s familiar with and decided to lay down on the grass – who wouldn’t be curious?

The video was shot at an elephant reserve in India, but it’s not clear where it was, specifically. As you might know, the majestic elephant is actually an endangered animal species because of loss of habit, but primarily because of poachers. It’s a horrible practice that needs to be stopped. Luckily, elephants still have some safe zones in a number of reserves around the world, and the crew makes sure that they’re properly taken care of.

Sometimes, they’ll also allow tourists or visitors to the sanctuary and spend some time with the elephants.

When this woman found herself a picnic spot, she quickly attracted the attention of this adorable and relatively small elephant.

There was not a single doubt about it: this baby elephant was very, very curious and just needed to say hello! It was still very new, strange and exciting for the youngling – and it must’ve been a pretty special moment for the woman too! Luckily, she never felt scared and was more than welcoming to the elephant.

The way how this elephant approaches her is absolutely hilarious: he pokes her with his trunk to see what happens, and it’s laughter ensued.

The woman was quite flabbergasted and certainly didn’t expect to get explored by a fuzzy elephant trunk day, but judging by her reaction and laughs, she absolutely loved meeting this baby elephant.

One of the main things that battled the animal is the fact that she didn’t have a nose! Or at least, she didn’t have a nose in the sense that elephants do.

The elephant tries to look for the girl’s “elephant nose” with his trunk, and it’s equally as adorable as it is hilarious to see.

This video was taken over ten years ago and is definitely a classic. It went viral multiple times and has now amassed almost ten million views on YouTube alone!

It also reveals in the video description that the story about this baby elephant, in particular, is actually bittersweet.

“This is in India, where the calf had fallen into a 15 meter ditch on a tea plantation and its herd must have abandoned it after trying unsuccessfully to retrieve it. It was being raised at a wildlife rehabilitation center that has successfully reintroduced many elephants to the wild,” the video description reads.

In any case, it certainly looks like this baby elephant got the opportunity to live a happy and fulfilled life where he’s properly taken care of and stays out of danger. And of course, he just loves to say ‘hello’ to human visitors!
