Ever taken a small dog like a Poodle on a walk and watched it aggressively bark at another hound that is twice it’s size?

Baby elephants are sort of the opposite of that example. With their legs alone being the size of a human torso, doesn’t mean they don’t want to cuddle up to your face or curl up on your lap… if you can manage to do so without great pain or injury.
