Elephants are the gentle giants we all know and love - but baby elephants are even better. It's time to show some significant appreciation to these fuzzy-headed adorable animals who will eventually become the mammoths of tomorrow.

Elephant baby, or a calf, is usually born at about 250 pounds and 3 feet tall. They're pretty clumsy for about three months after they're born and have hardly any control over their trunks, which they often trip over. As if that doesn't make them enough of a bustle, calves usually drink around three whole gallons of milk every day, a routine they sometimes keep for up to 10 years. That's a tall order for a mom of any wild animal species! While male elephants will grow to leave the herd after 12 years or so, females stay with their families for life - good news for all of the elephant parents who can't bear the thought of their cute elephant daughters leaving the nest.

Thanks to wildlife photography experts we can share the most adorable Dumbos with you. Check out our compilation of the cute animals below, and share this with anyone who might need a few floppy ears to help them get through today.
