Elephants fiercely protect their calves no matter what. A clip from Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu proving that elephants care for their babies has surfaced online and netizens are loving the herd.

The clip shared by Susanta Nanda, an Indian Forest Service officer, on Twitter shows an elephant herd walking on a road. As the herd takes a turn, a calf is seen moving in between them, completely protected. The elephant calf is seen moving a bit fast to keep pace with the adult elephants.

The clip seems to be captured from a moving vehicle. People are heard speaking in Tamil and saying that the elephants will not come toward them as the calf is with them. They also say that it might have been a week since the calf was born.

Nanda tweeted, “No body on earth can provide better security than an elephant herd to the cute new born baby. It’s Z+++. Said to be from Sathyamangalam Coimbatore road.”
