This past Saturday was nice. We took the kids to the zoo and had a great time. It was a great family outing yet we felt exhausted  when we got home. There was an interesting thing that happened while we were relaxing on a bench near the Elephant exhibit – which, by the way, is amazing! They have added to it and it now has 12 elephants, 3 of them are babies. Extremely cute one’s too! So anyway, the interesting thing was this: One of the baby elephants was getting milk from its Mother. They were standing off to the side of the small lake that is in the exhibit. After a few minutes, 2 of the full-grown elephants marched over to the Mother that was breast-feeding and began nudging the child away from getting her milk. Once they got the baby away from the Mother, the 2 elephants then proceeded to nudge and push the breast-feeding mother into a small, isolated cave. The baby followed the mother. So, at this point, the mother and child are tucked away from all the other elephants and the 2 pushy elephants walked back to their original spot and continued doing what they were doing.
