A BABY elephant finds out that walking is a jumbo effort.
The newborn struggled to stay on his feet and then hit the floor face first. He eventually managed to stay upright — with a little help from mum.
Belgian Caroline Deschuymere took the snaps in Zimbabwe. She said: “I could not stop laughing.”
Caroline added: “Normally I would look for the African wild dogs or lions first because they are more active in the early morning.
“But that morning, for some reason, I saw tiny baby elephants everywhere, so I decided to stick with them.
“The baby tried to get on his feet for more than an hour but his legs were still bent, so he first had to learn how to stretch them.
