When a baby elephant is only three weeks old it has a lot to learn about his surroundings. Today the ‘lolifantje’ in Copenhagen had a ittle mishap.

This looks like a good spot to sit on.

Oh no, I was wrong! The chair isn’t comfortable at all!!

Luckily the mama and an auntie were there to help the little one

And up to his feet again. 🙂

The elephant ladies seem to be satisfied with the ‘rescue operation’.

All is well when the end is well. The only ‘injury’ for the baby boy was a wet boomsie.

  1. Liebe Mervi

    Das war ein Schreck für das kleine Elefantchen.
    Aber Mama und Tante haben toll reagiert. Ich
    finde die gemeinschaftliche Fürsorge in den
    Elefantenherden großartig. Jeder packt
    sofort an, wenn es mal nötig ist ! 🙂

    Herzliche Grüsse
    Chris 🙂

  2. Dear Mervi!
    I´m sorry for this cutie. To fall backwards must have been quite a shock for him.
    Mercifully he didn´t hurt himself seriously.
    Fortunately his mother and an auntie could help him to get on his feet again.
    I wish this sweetie pie all the best, more luck and less mishaps…
    This was quite an upsetting foto series. I am glad it had a happy ending.

    Hugs
    Anke

  3. Dear Mervi!
    the little elephant looks very fragile. It looks like he/she was not hurt through the mishap. I wish a cutie all the best.
    Hugs

  4. Dear Mervi,

    Oh my, how wonderful that the little sweetie was not hurt! Bravo! to the Mother and Aunty for such an efficient rescue!

    Hugs, Sarsam

  5. Liebe Mervi,

    die Rettung ist geglückt und dem Kleinen ist nichts passiert, gottseidank!
    Es ist immer wieder berührend zu sehen, wie die Elefanten mit vereinten
    Kräften und geschickt mit ihren Rüsseln eine solche Situation meistern!

    Danke für die tollen Schnappschüsse aus dem Zoo in Copenhagen!
    Herzliche Grüße
    Britta-Gudrun

  6. Dear Mervi
    The photos and your words go so well together.
    The little elephant bull is fortunate to have such
    attentive ladies.

  7. Liebe Mervi,
    alles gut gegangen, das ist das Wichtigste!
    Danke für die schönen Bilder von dem kleinen Unfall.
    Liebe Grüße Moni K

  8. The little one is doing well. I saw him to-day
    Hugs Inge

  9. Liebe Mervi,

    vielen Dank fürs Einstellen der niedlichen Bilder.

    Beim Ansehen des ersten Fotos dachte ich noch. Oh ist das süß, sieht aus als säße der Minifant auf dem Klo.

    Und dann die weiteren Bilder….
    So putzig wie es aussieht, aber für den Kleinen waren es sicherlich Schreckminuten. Super, dass Mama und Tante so schnell reagiert haben, und dem Kleinen so schnell geholfen haben.

    Liebe Grüße
    Monika

  10. Dear Mervi, I think that I have read this story now about at least 10 times and I cannot help it but although it must have been quite a nightmare for little lolifantje, I always start to laugh. OK, I admit, that is very mean but his way of learning the law of gravity is unique!!! To summarize it: his boomsie was too heavy and in the end just wet. Luckily mommy and auntie were around.

  11. dear Mervi,
    I am very glad Mama and Auntie could help so fast the little Elephant, he is such a sweet Elephan boy. I hope his Mama and the whole family will always be close to him when he needs help
    thank ypu for all the lovely pictures and you have always the right text
    dear greetings and toerooooee

  12. Oooooops! Oh Gott, das arme ‘Rüsselchen’!

    I bed there were no complaints about the wet boomsie!
    What a great photo:

    Thanks to ZOO COPENHAGEN and to MERVI, of course, for having brought this
    uplifting good ending story to us in ‘KWM’!
