WATCH Elephant Gives Birth and Herd Celebrates

Watch the awesome display of celebration and protection as a herd of elephant gather around a female elephant and her newborn calf in Botswana, Africa.

Holidaymaker David Xing captured this moment on film a year ago when he was in Chobe National Park. He even managed to film the pregnant mom giving birth.

David was with a tourist group, on safari, when he witnessed the once-in-a-lifetime scene.

“This was unplanned and our group happened to be at the right time at the right place,” he wrote on YouTube. “Post birth celebration and protection from potential prey by the elephant herd is spectacular!”
