Sunday Smile: A Quick Snooze With Maia and Bambi

This week’s Sunday Smile is a gentle celebration of the bond that’s growing between Maia and Bambi. In this video, it was after breakfast and Maia got a little sleepy, as she tends to do after a good meal. Instead of wandering off, Bambi followed Maia to a shady spot where they could both relax. Bambi dusts while Maia tenderly touches Bambi with her trunk. As Scott says in the video, life is a great big party for them right now – they’re just choosing to party quietly at the moment.

    This budding friendship is so dang cute and beautiful. I have seen elephants using their trunks to hold anothers tail. Is this a common behavior?

      it is usually a trained behavior. most elephants don’t appreciate having their tails touched much.
