This pic is real. A polar bear came for multiple days to play with the dogs of a sled team. When the bear first arrived the owner of the dogs thought they were goners. Never once did the bear harm the dogs.
Mom and baby, so sweet. She keeps it close to her front legs, Her breasts are behing her fron legs. It's the safest place for a baby elephant for mom to protect it. They're such loving mothers. It's a joy to just watch them.
