The touching moment of an elephant giving birth is going viral on social networks.

A heartwarming moment of an elephant giving birth has gone viral on social media.

The clip shows an elephant in the Masai Mara reserve in Kenya delivering their baby to the world.

As the mother elephant gives birth to the baby, she is surrounded by a herd of other elephants to protect the little one.

Watch the magnificent moment unfold below:

People were loving the sense of ‘community’ the elephants showed and ‘collective caring’, which is something we could all do a little more of.

Commenting on the clip, one person wrote: “Elephants are a great example of how a healthy community is there for everyone – in the good and so good.”

A second person added: “What a magnificent moment captured on video!

“Mom giving birth to her baby alone while standing up!

“Then once it’s all done, the rest of the herd comes to join in celebration!”

Someone else wrote “Beautiful …. Social control… the herd is gathering together to project the little one.”

Another questioned: “Oh how far we’ve come from our basic right to exist as human beings on this planet.

“Look as these elephants take joy in their progeny – celebrating for & with each other. They’ve secured more life.

“What are we doing?”

“It’s absolutely amazing how elephants protect one another. A birth is something to celebrate and the baby is to be protected and assisted. I know why my father loved elephants so much! They are so intelligent,” someone else added

 

Well, it turns out that elephants have a very strange relationship with one another after mating.

Male elephants are called bulls, while females are called cows, and a baby elephant is a calf. When a bull mates with a cow, they apparently don’t stay together as as couple.

The bull will continue to mate with several more partners, while the cow if left to raise the baby calf on its own – which certainly doesn’t sound very nice.

However, the calf will pretty much be guaranteed full protection by the mother until it reaches childhood. This is because adult elephants are nowhere near as vulnerable to predators as the calves are.

As shown in the clip above, the herd of elephants aim to protect the young calves from danger.
