Lullabies may have been created for children, but that hasn't stopped an elephant in Thailand from falling asleep when her caretaker sings one to her.
Video posted on YouTube by the Save the Elephant Foundation shows Faamai the elephant with her caretaker, Lek Chailert, before she is put down for a nap.
First, Faamai is seen pulling Chailert in with her trunk for a hug. Then, as Chailert swats Faamai gently with a bright pink sweater, the elephant drops to her knees and lies on her side, as Chailert continues to serenade her with her singing voice.
Chailert eventually joins Faamai on the ground, resting her head on the elephant's. Faamai can be heard breathing deeply and is visibly relaxed, with her trunk coiled beneath her.
The pair, located in the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai, Thailand, look content as they lie on the ground together.
Faamai, an elephant at the Save Elephant Foundation in Thailand, falls asleep when her caretaker, Lek, sings a lullaby.
"Every time she hears the lullaby from Lek she still falls asleep," the foundation wrote in the description on YouTube. Its Facebook page features several photos posted by Chailert of the park's elephants playing happily.
The Elephant Nature Park plans on opening a fifth location in Phuket in August, Chailert told Thai media earlier this month. Other parks are located in Kanchanaburi, Suri and Cambodia.
Coconuts Bangkok described Chailert as an "elephant expert" who has been seen in documentaries by National Geographic, the Discovery Channel, Animal Planet and the BBC.

Social media in our modern civilization
Social media has become this significant part of our modern civilization. It is a defining trait of how integrated our social interactions have become. We credit this achievement to the developments that have made in technology to ingenuity of the visionaries among us, who, in creating social networking platforms, have helped write some of the present occurrences being experienced in the world today.
Facebook, Twitter, Google+ - A different world of social networking
With Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and other social networks we have become much aware of the world we are living in and this is one of the changes being talked about. Social Networking giants like Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ have contributed to create a whole new world where we are free to express our opinion and share it with our friends and peers. This world of social media gives scope to everyone to express and share ideas, thoughts and feelings, who want to be the part of it.
The 5 Impacts
News- Social media has become an important source of news. While the credibility of some sources can clearly be contested, news channels tweet or give updates on significant happenings all over the world. Their availability on social networks makes news more accessible. Additionally, news quickly gets passed around the networks in ways never experienced before.
Interaction- Social media has furthered interaction by such a massive scale that is hard not to notice it. It allows people to keep in touch in a more regularly, and sometimes, more intimately, than was ever before because of time and space constraints. People cities or continents apart can keep in touch so effortlessly, creating an opportunity to experience different cultures.
Political Landscapes- Social media has enabled greater political awareness and organization, which has in some cases rewritten entire political landscapes. It has particularly played a large part in the Iran elections, and Obama's reelection for a second term as US President, and inspired the political unrests in Egypt.
Learning- Social media has also played a large part in fostering literacy. Children who start using the platforms develop early communication skills, and generally become more literate. This is an encouraging trend, and thanks to the huge availability of information, both simplistic and complex on the internet, anyone can become as smart or intelligent as they desire.
Marketing- The whole dynamics of marketing have been changed, and rather than investing in mass channels ads, companies are becoming more consumer-centered through interactions made over social media. They are able to understand the needs of the market from the market itself, greatly altering the way marketing has been done in the past.
Here I Conclude
There are so many ways social media has changed the world, and the above five are among the most significant. Up to this point, social media has a firm place in our future, where it is hoped that the capabilities of these interactive platforms will be extended.
