Wide-Eyed Baby Elephant

“It’s scary enough taking your first steps in the world. But when a crowd is watching you, it can be even more frightening. That certainly seems to be the case for this three-week-old elephant calf ‘Baby’ making her first public appearance at Melbourne Zoo. She kept very close to her mother, narrowly avoiding being trampled on as she rolled on the ground. Then, to the delight of the zoo’s visitors, she had her first dip in the water. Her look of pure terror turned to delight as she sprayed her trunk, guaranteeing herself as the zoo’s prime attraction for years to come.” LINK,
