The pedestrians and local people could see them clearly from such a close distance. There are 21 adult elephants and baby elephants in total. Among these elephants, some were playing in the river, some were nursing, some were playing water, and some were looking for food on the bank…The people could not help recording these rare pictures by mobile phone or camera and published these pictures on Weibo and WeChat.
