On the loss of their mothers, orphaned ostriches and abandoned baby elephants cuddle and comfort each other.

Following the deaths of their mothers, an orphaned ostrich and an elephant become friends.

The elephant Jotto and the ostrich Pea are perfect examples of how friendship transcends size, shape, and species. When Jotto was just a month old, he was separated from his mother.

David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT) transported him to an elephant orphanage in Kenya to be healed until he was ready to return to the wild.

Pea was discovered a few years ago while the staff was out rescuing a baby elephant. Then they noticed this poor bird and her brother, Pod, who were in desperate need of assistance. As a result, they were taken to an elephant sanctuary. Pod was released into the wild after a short time, but Pea chose to stay with the elephants.

Pea in the orphanage appears to believe she is a member of the elephant herd. When she needs to, she cuddles with her friend Jotto.

Jotto, on the other hand, is content to cuddle with his feathered companion.

They may be released back into the wild after a period of time. Until then, these pals are free to roam the Nairobi Nursery. It’s a good chance for these orphaned animals to be healed before being released back into the wild.
