Scroll down to watch the video

As much as the little elephant can’t find its footing, it keeps trying to prove on-lookers otherwise, writes mynews28.

The video was shot moments after the mother gave birth to her baby, who is determined to start walking immediately.

With a little bit of help from the trunk of its mum, the elephant can manage mere seconds before falling to the dirt again.

Grant Atkinson shot this video in Northern Botswana, moments after the baby was born.

Grant said: “We came across these two elephants – a mum who had just given birth.

“The little baby was really struggling to stand up and take its first few steps.

“The mum kept throwing dust, perhaps to cover up the post-birth b.l.o.o.d.

“She kept trying to encourage the baby to stand up.

“The baby finally seemed to make it up, before f.a.l.l.i.n.g d.o.w.n again.”
