Elephant and croc 1

*What a mama won’t do, to save her baby. This is no more evident than in the animal kingdom where, if you’re a fan of all those animal shows on TV, you’ll know what I mean.

An animal must always be in ‘alert’ mode for predators who will come at them from every angle. Even when they do something seemingly as innocent as getting a drink of water from a watering hole, they must use the instincts of their wisdom at the approach.

This was all too true for a mother and baby elephant who approached a watering hole and the mother, using that instinct, decided to drink first, before allowing her baby too.

And up jumps a crocodile, who proceeds to bite down on her trunk…and not let go.

That croc brought the mama elephant to her knees, and her baby is oblivious to the danger.
