African elephants

Loxodonta africana

Notes:

These are orphaned babies at Nairobi Nat park - this group was in the 3-6 mo range. They are socialized and raised until they can be released as a herd. They love to play and will flirt with the visitors if their keepers don't keep a close eye and even when they do

This place was featured in the recent issue of National Geographic. The keepers stay with the young elephants until they have successfully joined a herd
