A baby elephant has become a star of attention at a farm in Thailand, where he fell into the arms of tourists and demanded a cuddle.
The adorable playful kid named Nampuu – which means ‘fountain’ in Thai – lives at Patara Elephant Farm in the northern city of Chiang Mai.
Images of the encounter between Nampuu and unwitting tourists show visitors screaming with joy as the calf cheekily climbs on top of them, falls between their arms, and wraps his trunk around their heads.
During the visit to the farm, tourists can join the ‘Elephant Owner of the Day’ package tour. The tour allows them to learn all about elephant rearing and care.
During the tour, trainers will explain to visitors how to communicate, health, feeding, bathing, and temperament of elephants.
According to the farm’s Facebook page, baby Nampuu is always supervised by his mother Ploy, in case he becomes unruly during playtime with tourists.
She also called her baby boy with a rumbling sound when it is time to feed him.
