Kham Lha the baby elephant loves her human trainer so much, she isn’t afraid of putting herself in danger to rescue him – even if the danger is imaginary.

As Derrick was lazily floating down a river, Kham Lha believed him to be drowning, so the young pachyderm wasted no time. It plunged into the stream pushing through until she could nudge him out with love and concern.

Kham Lha is the youngest elephant at the Elephant National Park in Thailand. Their bond with Derrick was solidified when he became her tender caregiver following her rescue from captivity in the tourism industry last year.

The duo has become best of friends—on land or water.
