A newborn elephant must be CAPABLE of standing and nursing very soon after birth.  The dangers that are present for newborn calves in the wild are always present.  This image is one from a dummy I am working on and this particular painting was finished today.  I can't tell if it will change before the dummy is complete, but I know that the journey in creating the illustrations for this book will be a very satisfying one.
