Baby elephants are so cute, especially this baby elephant that didn’t want bathtime to end. But no matter how cute they are, having a deformity or simply looking different than others is enough for some baby animals to be rejected by their own parents.

Fortunately, that isn’t the case for this adorable pink albino elephant that was spotted by tourists in Kruger National Park in South Africa. The baby elephant is seen being cared for by his mother and that is such a positive sign. Albinism does cause poor vision in animals that may eventually lead to blindness but even with the health hurdles, this baby albino elephant is enjoying being part of his herd.

Here are some of our favorite YouTube comments from the video, “Adorable baby PINK elephant is at home with its herd despite its differences” by World News&EveryThing AbouT Life:
- “Poor little guy will not be able to tolerate the sun like the rest.” – C B
- “SO SAD FOR THE LITTLE CALF 😥🌺” – Glorious E
- “So sad. he will be at high risk of skin cancer AND sunburn is a given. he is also at higher risk for cataracts and of course, predation due to poor eyesight. Albinism is not a desirable trait for any non-furred animal that lives in hot, sunny areas of the world. He will suffer a lot of pain due to sun burning and likely chronic infections as well.” – Definitely Cortez
