I wish there was an entire series about this baby elephant and his sheep BFF

Baby animals! In peril! Forming friendships! Holy moly, this clip just about killed me with its adorableness. Behold, a sickly orphaned elephant calf – and his wooly sheep companion. The best part is about three minutes in, when the little pachyderm charges right at the camera, but I also like the part where he drapes his trunk on the sheep and then they just walk around the mudhole together. Besties!

If you loved this as much as I did -- and I hope you did, for everyone's sake -- you can watch the whole special, Unlikely Animal Friends 2, tonight on National Geographic Channel.

How does this compare to the elephant and dog whose friendship was the subject of a CBS Sunday Morning segment?
