The Story Of Tippi Degré: The Girl Who Was Raised In The Jungle

Playing with the Elephants

By now, it comes as absolutely no surprise that Tippi rode elephants. I mean, there is a picture of me riding an elephant at the circus when I was four, but it looked nothing like this. I looked terrified, and I was on the elephant’s back. She is wrapped around its trunk like it’s no big deal.

This photo really captures the love, trust, and respect Tippi and the elephant have for each other. However, the animal can be quite dangerous. They are so heavy that an elephant can accidentally squash such a small child. Don’t get me wrong. This is one of the most adorable pictures I have ever seen.
