Elephant herd comes to the rescue when baby falls down

Climbing isn’t easy when you’re an elephant.

Omysha is just learning to explore at the Zurich Zoo, and the elephant enclosure is full of small steps for them to climb. Only, for this baby elephant, the steps aren’t so small. 

When Omysha gets stuck, the adult elephants come running. They’re equally endearing with their maternal concern. Good thing that baby elephants, like human toddlers, seem to bounce right back.
