Ollie the Elephant is the only calf in his elephant herd. He is very quiet and enjoys basking in the sun and bathing in the mud. One morning, as he was sleeping in the shade, a bird mistook him for a rock and landed on his back for a rest. Ollie and Pipit the oxpecker became good friends from that day on. Ollie is not exactly the brightest of the bunch, so Pipit does most of the thinking and talking for him.
