Bejeweled Elephant Hairstick - Carved Wood Elephant with Ruby and Lapis Lazuli Gemstones

$35.00

I used to think of elephants as just another animal in Africa that I would like to see if I ever got over there. Then I saw film on TV of a mother elephant rescuing her baby from a watering hole. I looked for this video online and found this one instead. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KTHsyIQI2L0 Apparently baby elephants needing rescue are quite common! What’s amazing (to me anyway) is when the mother backs up and sticks out her back leg - it looks like she is encouraging the baby to grab her leg to be lifted out. It takes awhile to extricate the little one and other herd members get involved. Yes, I’m a sucker for animal videos, but these elephants are special.
