    Ecologists are very concerned about the condition of an elephant without a trunk, as its chances of survival in the wild are extremely slim.

    A baby elephant without a trunk has been captured on video at Kruger National Park in South Africa.

    Workers from the safari park cannot say exactly how the animal lost its trunk. Most likely, it was eaten by some predator. The employees have suggested that it could have been a crocodile or a lion. The poor pachyderm could have also lost its trunk in a trap set out by poachers.

      Nature is amazing and this video just reiterates that! The clip shows a duck landing on the surface of an iced over pond. As the duck lands it begins to slide along in the direction of a flock of birds, to soften the landing and steady itself, the feisty fowl calmly sticks out one leg, easily averting disaster.
