Turning up your nose isn’t such a bad thing when you’re an elephant!

A very young elephant – so young she doesn’t even have a name – met the public on Tuesday when she stepped out with her mother, Johti, at the Ostrava Zoo.

Johti, who is 44 years old, gave birth to her calf on April 15. Little more than a month later, the baby girl is already taking some steady steps toward being her own elephant. They grow up so quickly, don’t they?
