Wow! Can you imagine witnessing that and at such close range too. A privilege indeed.

Thank you for sharing that.

I wonder if there's a better quality one available anywhere on the net?

All hyperbole aside, this is simply some of the most amazing footage ever. Quite a privilege to get to see this

Wow, that IS emotional, isn't it?!

A privilege, indeed, to witness something so special! And those cute little white feet. I didn't know their feet were white at birth.

The only other place I could find it was on youtube. The quality is comparable, maybe a tad bit better.

I was also amazed at the white feet and how all the other elephants kept their feet off of the little guy.

What a difference a day makes to see the baby walking with its mother.

Unbelievable footage!

I cannot believe the other elephants would let the rover stay so close!

NYC_caniche...if you click on the link in OP (and experience the same as I did) you'll get an error. There is a link to go to google video home. Click on that link and then do a search "ulusaba elephant birth." It should be the first vid that shows up on the list and it plays. Hope that works for you.

What an amazing video. Can't imagine how amazing it would be to be chosen to witness that. What a privilege indeed.

WOW!!!
