Watch This Herd Of Elephants Greet A Rescued Orphan Baby Elephant

This amazing video shows a herd of elephants rushing to greet their newest member, an orphaned baby elephant.

I'm pretty sure this is the cutest thing I've ever seen.

Dok Geaw is one year and nine months old, and has been an orphan since his mum died when he was just four months old. Bloody hell, is someone chopping onions?


Following her death, little Dok Geaw was looked after by the Elephant Conservation Centre in Thailand, which has helped to hand-rear him and make sure he's well. Thanks to the hard work of staff and volunteers, Dok Geaw was moved to the Elephant Nature Park in the country's Chiang Mai Province, where staff could continue with his care.

He now weighs a healthy 775kg and is ready to join his new pals in the herd, although staff from the centre will still be on hand to give him milk and ensure he's progressing well.

He was introduced to the others on Sunday, and look how happy they are to see him:


They're so nosy. Little Dok Geaw handles it all very well, though, doesn't he? I want to go and hang out with him now.

After all the excitement of being the new kid, Dok Geaw buggered off for a nap.


Ahh. Can we get one?

And if that isn't cute enough for you, then please enjoy this clip of the baby elephant enjoying a splash about in the water:
