Little Tomba the elephant is a giant baby: he already weighs 100 kilos at birth! Because his herd will soon be moving on, he has to learn to walk very soon. The baby elephant must also learn to use its trunk. But because the trunk is so heavy, he can’t even lift it at first, so he has to use only his mouth to drink with. | 4 +
