Posted by Connor Whelan on 13th Oct 2016

Elephants may have a lot of junk in the trunk, but their huge size does not mean that they can't be cute too! These giants of the animal world are amongst some of the cutest animals on the planet when they are young; with their long trunks and floppy ears only adding to their charm. That's why we've decided to bring you our top 8 cute elephants, so let's see if you can show us a cuter one!
