Just looking at baby elephant Khun-Seuk’s sweet contented face as he lays on his side napping (at an unnamed elephant orphanage in Chiang Mai, Thailand) one would not expect such human emotions to shine through. Perhaps in his dreams, his little elephant body & trunk “twitches” and stirs but not enough to interrupt his blissful sleep. He is startled but once, opening his eyes, raising his little trunk to his mouth as if a pacifier, then returns, unperturbed, to dream land.
As his Mahout says, ‘He loves to sleep… he makes the strangest noises I’ve ever heard.‘
