A heartwarming scene was captured in Khwaeng Khlong Maha Nak, Bangkok, as a baby elephant delightedly splashed around in a river under the watchful eye of its mother.
The young elephant can be seen playing in the water, rolling and jumping around, creating a fun and lively atmosphere.
This moment was caught on camera on March 22 by local photographer Channarong Tom Srisa-ard, 28.

The location is known as an elephant conservation area that promotes the ethical treatment of these magnificent creatures.
Just weeks before, another video from the same area showcased a “nanny” elephant teaching a hesitant calf to have a good time rolling in the mud.
This footage, taken at the Elephant Nature Park in Thailand by Save the Asian Elephants (STAE) volunteer Steph Snowdon, displayed the adult elephant diving into the mud and covering itself completely.
The young elephant observed and then approached the muddy area, eager to try wallowing for itself.
Following the adult’s example, the calf plunged onto the soft ground. STAE CEO and animal rights advocate Duncan McNair shared the adorable video on Facebook on March 3.
