    Description
    This young maternal elephant has lost her calf and she can be seen stroking or trying to lift the calf up with her trunk..look at the base of the trunk..she has had a tough time already losing a calf and a tusk.. family bonding and particularly death is something we seem to have in common with our beloverd elephants the second calf body language is totally depressed .. VERY SAD AND TRAGIC SIGHT.
