Baby Elephant at the Oregon Zoo

Cute Alert: It's an El-Infant!

Keeping elephants in zoos is controversial. Some people say they shouldn't be in captivity, others say allowing people to see endangered animals makes them care about their continued survival. I don't know enough about it to say, but I do know that it's touching to see this tiny (by elephant standards!) baby elephant finally bonding with his mother, Rose-Tu (who had been a little rough with him at the beginning). Zookeepers kept watch to make sure that Rose-Tu was gentle with the little one and according to this news story, "The calf leaned against her wrinkled side, and she gathered him between her front legs, a sign of affection." Cute!
