Elephant Falls Asleep Whenever Her Caretaker Sings Her A Lullaby

Even the most restless kids can go to sleep with a relaxing track, but what about a fully-grown elephant? Surely not?

Meet Faamai, a women elephant at the Save the Elephant Foundation in Thailand, that is showing us wrong.

The YouTube network elephantnews published this video of Faamai dozing off after her caregiver Sangduen “Lek” Chailert sang her a Thai lullaby:

The huge elephant is initially seen luring Lek into what appears to be an embrace prior to drowsily settling down to sleep as the comforting lullaby washes over her.

Lek, the shelter’s director and a multi-award-winning animal environmentalist who has long promoted elephant conservation, has been highlighted in movies from the BBC, National Geographic, Discovery, and Pet World.

Lek also sleeps with baby elephants in the video below to make them feel secure and secure.

“Not just only human babies need that. Elephants want that part too,” The caption for the video clip reads.

Pets have actually been recognized to appreciate songs and also hum to themselves, even though there is little scientific evidence to support whether elephants or other animals generally even respond to it.

3 European zoos captured low-frequency hums from giraffes last September, but the reason for the hums remained unknown.

Additionally, a study conducted earlier this year revealed that gorillas produce happy songs that they sing to themselves just before or during meals.
