Those of us lucky enough to have a brother or a sister, or even both, know the incredible feeling of having someone you can trust with your secrets and most valuable possessions, as well as a loving slap from time to time. It’s more than love. It’s a love-based cooperation.
Today Bright Side collected 20 heartwarming photos to remind you just how great it is to have a sibling.
Among the concerns of baby elephants – at least one, apparently – is what to do with the long, pendulous objects dangling from their faces.
The accompanying footage, captured in South Africa’s Kruger National Park, shows a newborn elephant crossing a road with a breeding herd of larger elephants, which have long since grown accustomed to their trunks.
But the calf seems confused by the rubbery proboscis; the young pachyderm shakes it this way and that, tries to step on it, and to shoo it away.
Mario Paul of MVP Guiding, which uploaded the video on Wednesday, stated in the description: “The reason he is doing this is not known, but it could be that there might have been something in his trunk that made it itch or maybe he just didn’t understand this long thing on his face … either way it was very funny and made our day.”
The cuteness factor was not lost on viewers of the SANParks–Kruger National Park Facebook page.
“Nothing cuter than a baby ellie!!” writes one viewer.
“Looks like he got an ant up his nose,” writes another.
The ant theory is plausible. Elephant trunks – which essentially are modified noses – are highly sensitive, and even capable of detecting water underground.
They’re also dexterous, capable of picking up the smallest of twigs and leafs, and are sometimes used to pluck thorns from an elephant’s foot.
But if an elephant gets an itch up its trunk, it’s a bothersome issue, but one that’s typically resolved over time.
Kruger National Park, in northeastern South Africa, is the country’s largest game reserve and a major refuge for elephants.

There’s no doubt that this little girl would chose dancing over sleeping any day for her favorite song. But there are definitely moments when the choosing between sleep and another thing can be a challenge. For example, what do you do when you have to choose between sleep and food?
Well this cutie is facing that very dilemma. This baby boy is really struggling to stay awake to finish eating his toast. To sleep or to eat? That is the question. Just when you think that he’s about to give in to sleep and the parent tries to take the toast away from him, he jerks awake for just long enough to regain his grip on the bread. Check out the full video below to see whether sleep or toast wins this battle.

Most children are so energetic and unpredictable that you never know what they are going to do. These little rascals are able to rush around the house for hours, turn everything upside down, and suddenly disappear from their parents’ eyesight. Checking in on our babies, we often find them taking a nap among the toys, besides the pet, or in some other unpredictable place.
