Elephant Mother Knows How To Get Things Done (VIDEO)

The animal kingdom is never short of heart warming moments.

When an adorable elephant calf got stuck in a waterhole, her mother was right by her side, scooping and pushing her out of the muddy ditch. And when other elephants tried to assist, the mother pushed them right out of the way and handled the ordeal herself. This mother elephant definitely deserves a round of applause.

This amazing footage was captured in the Addo Elephant National Park, located in the Eastern Cape region of South Africa. It's the third largest national park in South Africa and is home to a wide range of animals, including lions, black rhinos and zebras.
