The World’s Top 10 Most Ridiculously Adorable Baby Elephants

My buddy over at  has a blog dedicated to “The World’s Top 10 of Anything and Everything”.  I recently asked him if he’d ever considered doing a baby elephant list.  You see, I’m obsessed with elephants and I’m absolutely batty about baby elephants.  I mean all baby animals are adorable, but elephants are a special brand of cute.  One day I’ll get to meet one of these little guys in person, but for now I’ll settle for the honor of doing a guest blog for Russel and his awesome followers!

Let me first express how very difficult it was to narrow this list down to 10.  All baby elephants are delightfully cute, but in my opinion, as an expert on the subject, these are the best of the best.  Get ready for cuteness overload people!

10- Look at his little elephant face!  His little feet perched on this log are just darling.

9- Cute little fuzzy head.  He looks like he might benefit from a dryer sheet!

8-  Sweet trunk holding!  Mama elephants are just so loving.  And look at this guy’s cute little legs!

7-  Look at his cute elephant nose!  Something about this picture reminds me of Rudyard Kipling’s story “The Elephant’s Child”.  This was one of my favorite stories as a kid.

”Scuse me,’ said the Elephant’s Child most politely, ‘but have you seen such a thing as a Crocodile in these promiscuous parts?”

6-  “Oh, hello there!”  This little guy’s striking a model pose.

5-  What’s better than one baby elephant?  Cuteness squared.

4-  And more double cuteness!  These guys are unbelievably precious!

3-  I can’t even deal with this little guy!

2-  Poor little, sad fella.  This guy needs a hug.

1-  And this guy is getting one!

My BF posted this one on my Facebook wall one day when I was sick to cheer me up.  I totally believe it helped me get better quicker.  I need to hug a baby elephant.  It just needs to happen!

I hope you enjoyed my list!  And I hope that you Top 10 readers will take a chance to check out my blog. Please, please, please (I’m not above a little begging!)    I write about a bit of everything.  Quick Stepp:  music, memories, fitness, food & randomness

Stay positive & love your life!

  12. I love these photos. They remind me of some amazing elephant experiences in South Africa. We stroked a 3 week old elephant that was being bottle fed and watched baby elephants play by the watering hole at Addo. One of the baby elephants was struggling to get out of the lake (they call them dams over there) and three adult elephants worked as a team to get him out. We filmed the whole thing and it was one of the best experiences of my life.

  13. I’m with you. I love elephants and baby elephants are just too adorable!! I just don’t want one stepping on my toes. 🙂

  14. I helped bathe a baby elephant at a sanctuary in Malaysia, it was awesome. Loving the baby Ellie cuteness 🙂

  32. I don’t know if because this was posted in 2013 and it is now almost the end of 2017, that this happened, but it really bummed me out because I love grown AND baby elephants, but when I got to number 4, every photo from 4 down to 1 did not show up ! Other links to this same article and reposts, all said could not find page, or so etching similar! Anyone out there still seeing and monitoring this page? If so can you check it out and see why the last four won’t who up for me?

    • So sorry! I haven’t posted on this blog in quite some time. I likely won’t back out and hunt for the photos, even I don’t remember what they were. 🙂 Wish I could have supplied your fix of cute today.

Okay, your turn to talk!
