One of the most special videos of wildlife I have seen! A calf is stuck in the water and can't get out. After 10 minutes of determination, the herd manages to rescue the baby elephant. Taken by pawpindilla.
There are three living species of elephants, not two, and their family tree is more complex than anyone realized, genetic analysis has revealed. The finding is important because it adds urgency to the quest to save the African forest elephant. It also represents the debut of a genetic technique that could help us understand other animals' heritage.
