Violet the buffalo lost her parents a little too early in life. And now she's on a mission to find some new ones.
Violet, who turned 1 year old last month, lives at Elephant Nature Park (ENP), an animal sanctuary in Thailand. While it's unclear how she lost her parents, she seems to have taken a particular shining to her new carer, Darrick Thomson.
Lek Chailert, founder of ENP (and Thomson's wife), recently shared a video of Violet greeting Thomson on his daily rounds. As Thomson walks through her enclosure, she follows behind him, calling out. When he stops and bends down, she quickly nuzzles up to him.
