Goals in life may seem far, however it depends on how you approach them. This young elephant calf was deserted and adopted by another female elephant. They were not with a herd, as the calf was unable to walk for long distances due to what appeared to be poor development in its back legs. With limited walking abilities the calf maintained its goal of survival and continued to follow the adopted mother.
