There, she was doing her own thing, taking a short nap in the sunshine. Then trouble followed. . . and sit on her.
Looking suitably tired, one-year-old Jegeg struggled to free herself while her male friends – like the boys – clearly thought it might be fun to keep provoking her.
A careful adult intervened before things could end in tears, and the punished Gateng had to let Jegeg escape.
Jegeg tried to catch up on sleeping in the sun while the keepers cleaned the home, but Gateng had a different opinion.
Sensing his golden opportunity to cause some mischief, the cheeky elephant stepped forward and sat on her, refusing to budge as she tried in vain to get up.
After a while, Gateng, who was almost smiling, felt pleased with his friend and decided to get up before Jageg made her escape.
Jageg is no stranger to the camera lenses and was caught on film last year cheekily running her trunk up onto Tony Blair’s shorts while he was on vacation with his family.
Anne, 49, regional managing director of a Singapore bank, said: ‘While their mothers were eating and the custodians were cleaning up their living area, the two played under sunshine.’
‘Jegeg started sleeping in the sun, and Gateng came and sat on top of her – this mess was a struggle as she tried to get up, and he wouldn’t budge.’
“They are very playful, strong, and cheekily push you or even slap you with their little trunks.”
‘This is a wonderful and heartwarming park because these elephants were born to save logging elephants.’
