A group of elephants worked together to save a baby elephant from lionesses who wanted to eat it. A photographer named James Gifford took pictures of the lionesses trying to catch the baby elephant in Chobe National Park in Botswana. But the elephants protected the baby elephant and scared away the lionesses. It was an amazing moment!
James said lions encountered a group of elephants, but the lions didn’t attack. The elephants didn’t notice or see the lions as a danger. The lions waited for the elephants to pass and attacked a young elephant left behind. The lions knew they couldn’t take on the whole herd.
A young animal got scared when two lionesses attacked it. The first lioness jumped on the baby elephant’s back but couldn’t hurt it alone. Luckily, another lioness arrived to help, but it was too late. The young elephant ran towards its family, and the lionesses stopped chasing it. They knew they could get hurt if they got too close to the bigger elephants.
