Big Momma is leading her herd of African elephants along an ancient walk her ancestors have trodden for generations. They're going to spend an idyllic day at a waterhole, drinking, bathing and playing. A passing group of male elephants warn them of tyre tracks they have spotted. Big Momma hurries her family along, trying to reassure them that elephants have no natural enemies, although loud bangs in the distance tell her otherwise.
This poignant presentation gives an insight into the daily life of elephants in the wild, encouraging us all to respect these awesome creatures.

Song Sample: From AN INCREDIBLE CREATURE (Verse 1 of 5)
An incredible creature, the elephant,
Gentle and strong and intelligent,
Standing there so wide and tall
Her back is a bridge, her side is a wall
Big Momma, gonna keep an eye on you
Gonna keep an eye on you,
Gonna keep an eye on you...
