Adorable! This elephant asks for a lullaby for her baby

Elephants are one of the most emotional and empathetic creatures on the planet. For proof, check out Faa Mai, who lives at the Elephant Nature Park near Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand. It rescues elephants from various abusive situation and gives them a place to be, well, elephants.

Faa Mai has had the same caretaker–a mahout named Lek Chailert–since she was very young. And when she was unable to calm her adopted baby, Thong Ae, Faa Mai insisted that Lek help out.

Faa Mai gently pushes away the tourists, seeking Lek. Why? So she could sing Thong Ae a lullaby.
