The Famous Story Of The Baby Elephant That Has Been Adopted By A Sheep
Themba’s mother di.ed when he was six months old when he fell off a high cliff. Themba was taken to a wildlife sanctuary. For a week, veterinarians at the Sanbona wildlife sanctuary in South Africa observed him and believed another elephant would adopt him. But Themba was left alone, no one cared and wanted to play with him after his first week at Sanbona.
Then the animal hospital decided to take him to another the wildlife rehabilitation area in Shamwari, and they introduced Albert the sheep to Themba. But unfortunately, Albert was scared and hid in a cave for twelve hours. There is rarely any connection between sheep and elephants, so the sheep’s escape is completely natural.
The next morning, Albert started venturing out, and Themba wouldn’t leave Albert’s side, and the two were seen exploring their surroundings with Themba’s trunk resting on Albert’s back. After all, Themba and Albert became best friends forever. They haven’t been apart since then. And this wonderful brotherhood has gone viral on social media.
He and Albert can be seen dozing together on a termite mound they have just demolished. Albert is like a brother to Themba, and he is definitely an important member of the Themba family. Albert copied everything Themba’s did. In fact, they have almost the same diet. Albert is the first sheep I have ever seen that eats a thorny acacia bush. He has been researching Themba and worked out. The best way to get his mouth around the long, sharp spines to reach the juicy leaves.
Dr Johan Joubert, director of the wildlife center, reveals his thoughts on these amazing friends. However, the wildlife centre’s team hopes to release Themba back into the wild and one day; they will separate with the memories of their friendship.
