A mother elephant helped her calf up a muddy riverbank to safety on the plains of South Africa.
In amazing footage showing love that truly transcends all, parents are seen crossing a body of water in Kruger National Park.
The footage, shows a herd of elephants crossing the street.
For fully grown mammals, the stream is a breeze. But for babies, it’s more of a challenge.
The baby male is seen struggling to get uphill, his little legs whirled but he couldn’t hold on.
However, his mother came to the rescue by giving him a hand and pushing him up to the bank with her giant trunk.
The rest of the herd can easily go up the river embankment.
The cameraman said: ‘The elephants are very sociable and caring for each other, especially their young.
‘Witnessing such incredible acts of kindness and caring between mother and child is a truly wonderful and inspiring experience.’
African elephants are easy to spot because of their large ears, much larger than Asian elephants.
