They say friends come in all shapes and sizes… Jotto the baby elephant was just 1-month-old when he fell in the well and separated from his herd. David Shelldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT) took him to an elephant orphanage in Kenya where he could heal until he was ready to go back to the wild. Little did the rescuers know that even though there were plenty of elephants at the shelter, Jotto will become BFF with… an ostrich named Pea!
