Cuddly zoo elephants snuggle up at bedtime

The Dublin Zoo is home to a family of Asian elephants. There is the bull elephant Upali. The matriarch, Bernhardine, and her sister, Yasmin. There are also daughters Asha and Anak, as well as calves Kavi, Ashoka and Samiya, which are all almost a year old.

The zoo just posted an incredible ahhhh-inducing photo of two of the calves, which has attracted more than 10,000 likes and hundreds of shares. So of course, we couldn’t help ourselves.

“Check out this cute photo of elephant calves Ashoka and Kavi, snuggling up to sleep, taken by our night vision camera,” the zoo posted on Facebook.
