        Sorry to disillusion you. :noidea:

        A lovely story, and picture, but it was an April Fool's Day hoax last year and had been photoshopped from photos taken in 2005 (the elephant was in the Kruger and the cub was in an Australian zoo). It was put out by The Kruger National Park

        [​IMG]

        They also included, in the original Tweet, that it was taken by Sloof Lirpa.

        This name dates back a long time (I have a long memory :old: :heehee:) to the April Fools Day video made by That's Life in 1984. They filmed a new animal, a Lirpa Loof (April Fool, backwards), in London Zoo and David Bellamy did the report.



        I also remember the 1957 Panorama April Fool's Day hoax
