Baby elephants have a boundless love for mud, like most of our children. They can spend all day playing in the mud, alone or with their friends. They don’t care how they look after mud time. They have a lot of fun and laughter. Here’s what that means!
And, this elephant herd does the same. As they were about to go down a muddy hill, some playful and active calves came up with a brilliant idea. They created their own muddy slide. This not only helped them continue their journey but also had some fun.
Initially, there were only two baby elephants to play on the slide. But the two couldn’t hide the excitement on their faces. Slide down the muddy hill with ease. Who can resist? And as a result, many other members, big and small, shared in the fun. Some walked gracefully, some struggled, and some carefully stepped down on their legs.
As it turns out, elephants love to play in the mud even when they are no longer young animals. When the opportunity comes, they have no reason to ignore it.
These funny, adorable moments were captured by the Elephant Voices conservation team. They discovered this herd while observing a herd of elephants near the Sand River gate in Maasai Mara National Reserve, Kenya.
When the group shared this adorable video on their social accounts, it garnered millions of likes and shares. People can’t resist the cuteness of these chubby animals.
Playing made the herd’s journey more enjoyable. This shows how important it is to create fun for yourself. You can find it in simple things and simple actions. And, don’t forget to spread these happy vibes to the people around you.
