This stunning video shows a heart-warming moment between two rare elephants.

Captured in Amoseli in Kenya, the photos show two elephant twins in the iconic Masai Mara. The two elephants are believed to be the first pair of elephant twins born since the 1980s.

The two calves — a male and a female — were born at the end of May during the rain season. The 38 year-old Mother Paru is part of a 40-member family.

The park, which lies at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro, is currently home to 1,600 elephants divided into almost 60 families.
