Baby Safina Takes a Tumble

Savanna elephants spend their lives on the move, foraging for food and looking for water. Even newborn babies are expected to walk from day one. Baby Safina may have to cover nine miles a day, and more than 2,000 miles in her first year. But sometimes walking isn’t as simple as putting one foot in front of the other as Safina discovers when she has to cross mud for the first time.
