WATCH: Lullaby puts elephant to sleep every time
An elephant caretaker in Thailand has shown all you need to put the enormous animals to sleep is a soothing voice.
In a video shared online by the Save the Elephant Foundation yesterday caretaker Lek Chailert shows how she uses her skills to sing Faamai the elephant to sleep at the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai.
As Ms Chailert approaches, the affectionate pachyderm extends her trunk and bring the carer in for a hug.
When the trainer swats Faami with her jumper, the elephant knows it’s nap time, dropping to her knees and lying on her side.
Faami begins to relax, breathing slow and deeply as her trunk curls before Ms Chailert bends down to the ground and leans against the animal as she continues singing.
“Every time she hears the lullaby from Lek she still falls asleep,” the foundation wrote in the description on YouTube.
Ms Chailert is reportedly an elephant expert who has featured in a number of wildlife documentaries from around the world.
