The footage shares the incredible story of Moyo, an orphaned baby elephant that was rescued from drowning when he was just a few days old. The baby elephant was travelling with his herd when they all came across a flooded river. While most of his older siblings managed to cross the river, Moyo unfortunately couldn’t. He was just minutes away from dying when rangers fortunately saw him in the raging waters and acted immediately.

Luckily, the rangers managed to get to him in time and save him from certain death. The baby elephant was then taken at an animal rescue center in Zimbabwe. Among the people who interacted with the elephant the most was the founder of the center, a woman named Roxy.

As a result of all the time they’ve spent together, Moyo become very much attached to Roxy and he now follows her everywhere she goes. Even though he is still a baby, Moyo is pretty large in size! But this hasn’t stopped him from making himself at home in Roxy’s house.
