Don’t you just love it when animals of different species find each other and create instant chemistry? It is also the case of a baby elephant at Kruger National Park in South Africa and his feathered friends. The newborn elephant capturing hearts from all over the world, now that the video has reached viral proportions. And it couldn’t have been otherwise,  because if you watch it, it’s impossible not to fall in love with this cute little fella.

The baby elephant prances and gallops his way across the pavement to a flock of birds, who appear to circle him. He loves it because he seeks them out, scurries towards them, and they have a fun time enjoying the sunny day. The little guy looks like he stepped out of a Disney movie with his huge smile and happy trunk. The little one’s mom wasn’t far away so she could keep a watchful eye over the antics of her offspring.

But since nothing last forever, the elephant’s moments of joy aren’t endless as well. As the birds fly off, the carefree baby elephant heads back over to his herd, who wander off into the trees. Watch for yourself this heart melting scene in the video bellow! It will definitely bring a smile on your face!
