‘What’s This Long Thing For, Mommy?’

Baby elephant tries to figure out her own trunk

This newborn elephant, at the Whipsnade Zoo in England, is fully occupied with take her first baby steps, working out which leg does what, and, most important, how not to step on her own trunk. She doesn’t seem quite certain what it’s even there for.

The video was taken by visitors to the zoo. Hopefully, by now, the youngster has it all figured out!
