    When a female elephant gives birth, she is often helped by another female from the herd. This “friend” may actually help deliver the baby with her trunk and often washes the newborn. The females take turns “babysitting” the young of the herd while the other mothers eat. Elephant care for one another when they are ill. They have been known to take food and water to sick herd mates for many weeks. Elephants also tend to the dying.
