Video show a cheeky baby elephant tries to s.tea.l her best friend’s phone from his hand

This infant elephant is a nosy parker, as she attempts to s.tea.l a phone from her human companion by screwing her trunk.

Uli, the funny mammal, was filmed cuddling up with Wanda while he attempted to send a text message on his phone.

Uli then wrapped her trunk around the mobile device several times to figure out what was going on, but after receiving a friendly nip on the hand, Wanda stood firm and gently coaxed her away.

The pair were filmed at Barumun Nagari Wildlife Sanctuary in North Sumatra, Indonesia, by Ercie Kandou, from Jakarta.

The 35-year-old woman, one of the reserve’s founders, said: ‘During the day, usually after eating or taking a nap, she likes to get close to a man she knows to play with him.

‘In this video, she was curious to see what was in Wanda’s hand and decided to taste it.

“She tried to get his phone, but when she realized she couldn’t, she bit Wanda’s hand to ask Wanda to play with her.”

Uli was rescued along with her mother and several other elephants after being found mal.nourished and a.ban.doned in a mammal training camp.
