Animals and their funny behaviors are frequently uploaded on numerous social media sites. Some of them are just too adorable to behold, with netizens exclaiming “awww” or “so cute.”
In a spate of similar films, a short clip of an elephant splashing about in a paddling pool is making the rounds on the internet.
The viral video, which was shared by the Sheldrick Wildlife- popular wildlife for rescue, rehabilitation & release of orphaned baby elephants, starts with a nine-year-old elephant named Tundani playing in a muddy pool with his friends.
Tundani is a 9-year-old elephant from Tsavo who was saved and brought to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya on April 8, 2013. As the video continues, Tundani may be seen napping for a time before resuming his play in the mud pool.
“Tundani might be going on nine years old, but when he finds a paddling pool, he reverts to one big water baby,” said the zoo authorities.
Meanwhile, the video shared with the caption: “He owes his life to our pilot who spotted him on a routine patrol. Now he’s slowly returning to the wild” is now viral on the microblogging site.
Since being uploaded almost 23 hours, the video has had over eight thousand views and is still growing. The film also gained a number of tweets from people complimenting the zoo keepers’ creativity and the amusing nature of the huge mammal.
“Tundani is the cutest water baby ever! Thanks to the pilot that spotted him and gave him his life back! U guys are truly amazing!!” wrote a social media user. “Tundani is one very handsome water baby!!
