Baby elephants are among the most adorable creatures. Their playful behaviour and adorable antics never fail to spread cheer. A video that is currently doing rounds on social media is a testimony to the same.
Forest Service (IFS) officer Susanta Nanda took to Twitter to share the aforementioned clip. The video shows a baby elephant playing on a heap of sand. The baby animal seems to be super happy while playing with sand and its expressions are worth noticing. “The satisfaction on baby’s face is better than climbing Mt Everest.” Susanta Nanda wrote as he shared the clip.
This little girl’s name is Wan Mai. She’s an Asian elephant under the protection of Save Elephant Foundation who is featured on social media quite frequently. When she saw the pile of sand, she got very excited and ran to it. She buried herself in the sand, causing the sand to cling to her body.
As can be seen in the video, the baby elephant climbs up a pile of sand with his tiny feet and after climbing, the elephant’s face is extremely happy. Then he came down from the sand while having fun. After descending, it roamed here and there happily near the sand pile.
The ɪɴꜰᴀɴᴛ animal appears to be having a wonderful time playing with sand, and its emotions are worth noting. And netizens were absolutely delighted after watching this endearing clip. They took to the comments section to express their thoughts. “So cute and adorable,” a user wrote. “Babies will always be babies – humans or otherwise – cute, innocently joyous and carelessly playful (sic),” wrote another user. “Baby elephants are cutest beings,” another comment read.
Wan Mai was ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇᴅ along with her mother from an elephant show and riding camp. Wan Mai and her mother were found living in in ᴛᴇʀʀɪʙʟᴇ conditions. Wan Mai mother was on an extremely short ᴄʜᴀɪɴ in a tiny concrete pen without adequate space to care for her newborn baby or access to sufficient food and water. The owner of the riding camp eventually agreed for Save Elephant Foundation to ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇ Wan Mai, on the understanding that they could provide a better life for them at the sanctuary. Save Elephant Foundation are a Thai non-profit organization dedicated to providing care and assistance to Thailand’s elephant population.
