In front of the camera and the vet, he lay on the floor drug-free and let his vet friend do his work there.
Phil Gabo in the video has been experiencing pain in his eyes lately. He was treated with antibiotic ointment three times a day, and the elephant recovered quickly from the treatment.
The elephant Gabo himself picked up a lot on the web, when he lay on the floor in front of the vet and waited there patiently for his aching eye to be treated.
Netizens have described the elephant as “the friendliest elephant in the world”, and the video is undoubtedly further evidence of how intelligent elephants are.
