The twin boy toddlers we took care of were wild about elephants.  I looked for elephant videos on youtube and the best ones I found were from a place called the Elephant Sanctuary.  Here they are watching one of their favorite elephant videos.

They especially liked the videos of Tarra (an elephant at the sanctuary) and her best friend Bella (a dog).  This video talks about that.

Bella was killed, they think by a coyote.  It's been quite a while now since that happened.  The death of Bella has been very hard for Tarra.  She has paired up with another elephant now named Shirley and the caregivers say that Tarra stands watch over Shirley when she naps.  Not too many things bring tears to my eyes, but that did.
