Feeding the baby elephant with the bottle we bought
Anyway we arrived just in time for the baby elephant feeding time and kids fed them and petted them. Then we went to the river to see them taking a bath and playing in the water. The baby elephants were so cute and it is so nice to see them next to their mother and how the elephants protect their young.
I love wildlife and as a kid my parents used to go on safari every holiday we got. We used to camp in the thick jungle to see wildlife. So for a person who loves wildlife to see elephants in captivity is a little boring and sad. But most elephants here are either with birth defects, injured or abandoned by their herds. Normally there is a reason that they are being kept here but yet it is definitely not the same when you see them here and not in wild. Specially now that they have made a big business out of it! There is a small video clip which I filmed while they came for a bath. Hope you enjoy.
On the way to Pinnawala we had some really juicy pineapples with chilli powder. Yummy!!!
