Have you ever wonder just exactly how an elephant gives birth?  Do they lay on their side?  Do they stand up?  How soon does the baby start walking?  Attached is a 1 minute, 35 second YouTube video shot in the bush of exactly that event.  This excellent video was shot and it the copyright of Dr. Upali Ranasinghe of Sri Lanka.
