A video of a young elephant enjoying a meal in the wild has become insanely popular on social media. The Sheldrick Wildlife Trust uploaded it to its official Instagram account. Following the video’s release, it received over 80,000 views.
Sweet Ziwadi, a newborn elephant, is seen in the video munching on the grass during a brief rest. ‘Sweet Ziwadi enjoys a snack and a scratch out in the woods! This is an elephant who always marches to the beat of her own drum.
She absolutely refuses to be rushed. Even when all the other orphans are hustling to and fro, she just continues placidly following her own routine (sic),’ read a portion of the video caption.
The following line explains how ‘Ziwadi has overcome extraordinary obstacles to be here today.’ It read: Ziwadi has overcome extraordinary obstacles to be here today. At just three years old, she will be in our care for many years to come — and you can become part of her story by adopting her this #FosterFriday.’
The video quickly went viral among netizens.. ‘I just loooove the beautiful language that you use to tell us about the elephants (or others) and their behaviours!
Reading it, I always imagine listening to the grand David Attenborough, at the same time very serious and with a twist of humour. Well done, writer(sic),’ a user commented. ‘My lovely Ziwadi. Love you girly (sic),’ another wrote.
‘I love that she can do both at once! Such a good multitasker!’ commented a third.
