This Man Calls out and Gets a Loud “Roar” in Response. Wait for the Elephant’s Reaction!

This is just the amazing daily life at Elephant Nature Park!

Elephants know a good person when they see one. But for this happy herd of pachyderms, one man holds a place in their hearts above all others.

His name is Derek. As a staffer at Elephant Nature Park in Thailand, Derek has forged an uncanny bond with the sanctuary’s namesake residents — particularly with a young calf named Kham La.

All he has to do is call out her name and she comes running, bringing with her other elephants who are clearly head-over-heels for Derek, too.

OH MY, I wish I could go join in the fun…
