Ely's arrival

Echo had given birth to at least five calves before, and new arrival Ely is greeted with no less curiosity by the herd. However, Echo's new youngster was clearly having problems and appeared unable to straighten his legs and walk. This clip gave a glimpse into Echo’s caring nature. Other elephants might have abandoned the baby.
