Baby Elephant Learns the 'Do Not Talk To Strangers' Rule


Feb 1 2016

Early morning one day, Marc Cronje, a tour guide in the Kruger National Park, was on the search for wild animals. 
While driving around near Malelane Gate, he turned the corner and managed to spot and show his excited guests on his safari a mother elephant foraging around with her adorable new-born calf. 

The two elephants soon decided that is was time to cross the road. However, the curious baby elephant got distracted by Marc's vehicle which he had stopped inorder to observe teh elephants. The baby decided he wanted to check out this car.
As the calf slowly creeped closer and closer to the car, the mother was having none of it and quickly pulled the calf back with her trunk. She had acted like she said the famous saying 'Don't talk to strangers'. 

This sighting is so amazing due to the fact that we as humans can strongly relate to the way this elephant mother taught her calf a valuable life lesson.
