Babies they may be, but at birth elephants can weigh a whopping 200 pounds.

The special thing about animals is that they're not aware of their size, whether they're teensy or massive. Surely you've seen a little nugget of a Chihuahua bark fervently at a Great Dane?

Yes, well, baby elephants are kind of the inverse of that. Just because their legs alone are the size of a human torso, doesn't mean they don't want to nuzzle up to your face or curl up comfortably (maybe?) in your lap. The docile little guys in the video above are proof.
