Babies, be it of any species, are among the cutest beings that we can see on this earth. This is a universal truth that even the most hardhearted person on earth will agree. That is because there is something so cute and so fascinating in looking at an almost perfect but miniature version of a species. When you consider that the species in question is the pachyderm elephant, then it is like an added bonus. These huge creatures that are pure vegetarians and known for their immense intelligence are so fascinating even in their fully grown state. So you can just imagine how fascinating, cute and attractive you will find the baby version of this noble animal.
We can actually place a bet that you cannot look at baby elephant with its cute appearance and funny antics without breaking out in a smile. There is no doubt that the baby elephant is the epitome of cute in its miniature avatar of the adult elephant. The baby elephant besides being immensely cute in appearance is also endowed with an endearing curiosity and plentiful energy that makes it so attractive.
The fact is, even grown up elephants tend to take the well being, care and protection of their baby elephants very seriously. When you look at herds of elephants in the wild, you will see that all the matriarchs in the herd will form an outside circle and will try to keep the baby elephants in the middle. This is their way of ensuring that the rambunctious baby elephant does not get into trouble and is protected from predators. However, even with constant swatting of the matriarchs on the backs of baby elephants to keep them in line, it is not an unusual sight to see baby elephants squealing and playing around. They tend to get tangled within the much longer legs of the matriarchs and trying to get out.
