A cow and its new-born calf

Did you know a male elephant is called a bull, while a female elephant is called a cow. A baby elephant is called a calf.

We were so happy to capture this mother and its newly born calf – almost two weeks old, going about their business at Vumbura Plains.

Baby elephants are not only born nearly blind but they rely on their trunks and mothers for everything, their mums will usually nurse them for four to six years.
