Rescued Elephant interrupts caretaker to request unexptected lullaby for baby calf

Did you know that Elephants love music? They will actually hold trunks and sway when they hear the violin!

Not only do Elephants love music, but they also feel it!

One of the greatest examples of this is the ritual shared between a rescued Indian Elephant, FaaMai, and her adoring caretaker Lek Chailert.

The two have developed a deep and intimate companionship since Faa Mai was rescued as a calf and brought to the Elephant Nature Park in northern Thailand, where Lek herself is the founder.

As Lek was taking a photo with Park visitors, Faa Mai decided to redirect her beloved caretaker’s attention towards what she viewed as a more pressing matter.

From the time the now 9-year-old Elephant was just a calf, Lek has sung her lullabies to calm Faa Mai’s nerves and ease her to sleep.

As an adult, Faa Mai has fallen in love with recently rescued baby Thong Ae and wants to make sure the little elephant gets the same loving treatment as she did.

At first, it appeared as though the massive elephant was just being playful, but as her trunk kept prodding more persistently, Lek decided she’d better just let Faa Mai lead the way.

As the two began to walk, Lek allowed herself to be steered by the massive trunk wrapped around her.

If she tried to veer left or right, Faa Mai would use her trunk to push Lek back onto the path.

In a post on her Facebook page, the Park founder admitted she wasn’t too sure about what Faa Mai was pushing her toward.

I wondered what it was that she really wanted

Well, it didn’t take her very long to discover the answer to her question!

Just a short distance later, Lek found herself face to face with Thong Ae.
