Controlling boisterous toddlers when they play-fight in public is a dilemma for many moms.
So, give a thought to this female elephant struggling to keep her calves in a land in the Kenyan wild.
The animals were seen jumping over each other and raising their front legs before they wandered through Entim Camp in the Maasai Mara as their mother watched on.
They were eventually pulled apart by the stronger pull of their mother’s trunk.
Wildlife photographer Margot Raggett captured their joy from a nearby safari truck, creating a stunning sequence of images that will be used as part of an anti-po.ac.hing campaign.
“They ran around like toddlers, lost control, and had a great time.” Ms. Raggett said.
‘While they were chasing and jumping on top of each other, the older elephants seemed to be trying to keep them under control. It was hilarious.
‘Finally, one decided to come and check out our car and even mocked us at one point, trying to make himself look bigger than he was!
‘The innocence and playfulness of baby elephants can provide hours of entertainment and fun.’
