20+ Photos Of Adorable Baby Elephants

March 22nd, 2018

With their floppy ears, trunk that’s too big for their body, and grinning faces, baby elephants are truly as cute as can be! When baby elephants are born, they typically already weigh about 250 pounds and are around three feet tall. For the first three months after they’re born, they don’t have much control over their trunk, and they often trip over it as they walk.

Baby elephants are adorable creatures who are curious about the world and want to explore everything around them. Here are some photos that show how cute these little elephants are!

1. It’s tough being a young elephant—there are so many new things to learn. After all that work, sometimes a baby elephant needs a little nap.
