Elephant Birth - what an amazing sight!

After the last post on the oversized dog, I found this amazing video of an elephant giving birth. As a vet, I found this fascinating. So for something completely different and very heart warming, do watch.
It is graphic - but what a moving film - certainly not something you get to see often.
The speed of the baby getting walking was amazing -and the kicking by the mother - wow!
