We’ve seen animals play around before, enjoying the pleasures of life like humans would, and the sight is always so cute! There’s this band of dogs who are splashing around at an all-dog pool party (in a dog bone-shaped pool, of course). Or how about these kittens who’ve taken over their human friend’s toy boxing ring? Watching animals have some fun is a great way to put a smile on your face!
Now, check out this baby elephant who has made a toy out of some tires. Watch as he stomps on them, steps in between them, and uses his trunk to throw one into the air. This little elephant lives at Elephant Nature Park, a sanctuary for elephants in Thailand. Check out the adorable-ness.
He looks pretty clumsy, and it’s a funny sight to see.
“Look ma, no trunk!”
“I think I got it! Yes, I caught it!”
“Take that, tires!”
“Why are these things even here? They’re awesome!”
He sure looks pretty happy with his new toys!
Many elephant calves in Thailand become victims of the tourism industry, trained to perform for human entertainment. When they show up in videos, there’s nothing cute about watching captivity. This happy elephant, however, does not have to suffer that sad fate, but is free just to entertain himself in his sanctuary home.
