If you think lullabies are solely good for lulling babies to sleep, think again!
Sangduen “Lek” Chailert, an elephant carer, illustrates in this video that a charming melody can even put a gentle giant to sleep.
“Even though Faamai is a huge elephant, she still falls asleep in Elephant Nature Park every time she hears a lullaby from Lek,” reads the caption next to the video.
However, before Lek sings to her pachyderm buddy, the elephant extends out her trunk to embrace the woman. It’s a lovely embrace, but it’s nothing compared to the sight that follows.
Faamai slowly descends to the ground and stretches down on her side as Lek begins her calming song. Soon, the two are snuggled up for a snooze.
The film, which was uploaded to YouTube on Monday, has already had over 120,000 views, but that’s nothing compared to the last popular video in which these two participated.
Because Lek and Faamai are old friends from the Save Elephant Foundation, a Thai non-profit that cares for the country’s captive elephant population, they initially rose to attention two years ago with another lullaby video that has received over 4.3 million views.
