Baby Elephant Naps so Hard Mother Asks Zoo Workers for Help 

We all know how a really good nap can knock us out!

This baby elephant napped so hard that its mom started to panic and had to ask zoo keepers for help.

Other than being incredibly relatable to fellow nap-lovers, it also shows the trust this huge animal has for her carers.

The video shows the mama elephant trying to wake up its baby but to no avail. This baby’s in deep sleep!

Not knowing what else to do, the mama elephant approaches the zoo workers to ask them for help.

To the mom’s huge relief, the baby elephant wakes up after being poked a good few times by the zoo worker.

The Footage

The mama elephant’s decision to approach the zoo workers highlights her trust in humans, an extraordinary aspect of elephant intelligence and adaptability.

A Display of Trust

Despite their massive size, elephants are surprisingly light sleepers.

Are Elephants Heavy Sleepers?

Research indicates that adult elephants in the wild sleep only for two hours a night, the least of any mammal.

This light sleeping pattern is thought to be an evolutionary adaptation, allowing them to stay alert to potential threats.

Wild elephants, always vigilant, sleep less and mostly standing up to quickly escape danger.

Captive elephants, on the other hand, enjoy the safety of their environment and often sleep lying down.
