Animals and their adorable behaviors are shared on a daily basis on a variety of social media sites. A little clip of an elephant depicted by the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, a pioneer in the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of orphaned baby elephants, has sparked a firestorm on the internet in a series of similar videos.
In the most recent video, elephants are seen playing peekaboo—a type of game played with a baby. One player hides their face, comes out again, and says “Peekaboo!” to play.
The video then shows the enormous creature, which was rescued from Meru National Park in 2018, scurrying away from the trunk of a tree. She can be seen giggling happily back like a real little girl playing Peekaboo.
Kindani (elephant) was named after a river that runs through Meru National Park and was found to have pneumonia in her early childhood, according to the Twitter post.
“Kindani answers the most pressing question: how do #elephant play peekaboo? She is a warrior, having overcome being orphaned and pneumonia in early infancy,” they shared along with the video,” said the authorities.
Meanwhile, the video that was previously shared is now spreading on Twitter. The adorable film has already been seen by thousands of people, and the number continues to rise.
The video has also received a number of tweets from people who appreciate the authorities and the amusing aspect of the huge mammal. “Aah, my sweet adopted girl Kindani. She is definitely a little warrior with all she has been through in her life. So pleased to see how well she is doing and has settled in with her family,” read the comment of a Twitter user.
“She gets caught and then hides her head behind the tree: I can’t see you, so you can’t see me! lol What a love bug,” commented the other user.
