Displaying a special connection, a mother Asian elephant and her calf move together among other related females and their young, under the direction of a matriarch. The elephant calf is born fully formed but is slow to mature.  Requiring much care as it develops, its mother dedicates all of her time and love to her calf, and will only give birth again after her first born has been weaned. 

Highly protective, and ever conscious of her baby’s wellbeing, an Asian elephant mother will charge fiercely at any threat to her young calf.
