    As she strides purposefully through an African forest in leopard-print Wellingtons, Essex girl Rachael Murton is pursued by six excitable elephants.
    Together, the lumbering animals weigh a combined 500 stone, but Chelmsford-born Rachael retains her composure.
    For these young orphaned elephants, this devoted young British woman is their surrogate mum, and each wants to be first for a cuddle.
    Tenderly, these colossal beasts — years from being fully grown — raise their trunks to 33-year-old Rachael's face, seeming to wrap her in an embrace.

    I am fascinated at the beauty and strength of elephants. Thank you for sharing this.

    On a sad note, elephants always remind me of Travis Alexander now....
