Shaking his head in despair, this is the adorable moment a baby elephant ‘discovers’ his trunk.
The hilarious footage shows a young animal swinging his trunk in the air and spinning it from side to side as he tries to capture facial features.
The boy even tried to step on his trunk at one point – seemingly confused about its use.
The lovely video was shot by Mario Paul in the Pretoriuskop area of South Africa’s famous Kruger National Park.
Hilarious footage shows the elephant looking seriously confused as it stands among his family.
With his ears flapping in the wind, the little animal turned and swayed his trunk before attempting to use it to bite into the nearby grass.
Meanwhile, the adult elephants around seemed unfazed by the baby’s confused state.
The trunk is an extension of the upper lip and nose, used to communicate and handle objects, including food.
