Olsekki is one precocious little elephant. At just over 2 years old, the orphan has already learned how to hold the bottle himself.
"Milk lover Olsekki is such a fan of his bottle, he's become the first ever orphan at our Nursery capable of picking it up from the ground to feed himself," The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT) wrote on Facebook on Monday. "Whilst some of the older orphans have learnt this skill once they've moved to our Reintegration Centres, Olsekki is the first orphan to do this at nursery level."
Olsekki was brought to the DSWT orphanage in Kenya, so that he could still have a chance at life.
Since then, he's made lots of friends - and huge strides. Like the other orphans in DSWT's care, the aim is to eventually take him to a reintegration center, where young elephants are slowly introduced to life in the wild.
And then one day, Olsekki will likely be able to live totally independently of human help, with his own wild herd.
With his new bottle trick, it's pretty clear he's got an independent streak in him already.
