These little elephants can weigh between 200-260 pounds. Imagine all that weight coming towards you, pressing you to the ground for a hug while you can’t fight back. Arthur seems to be enjoying himself.
Tara isn’t done with her struggling self! She clamped his right foot down and placed it on top of it, amusing the viewers.
Arthur leaned forward and slowly pushed Tara away. This adorable calf must have thought it was a game because she used her weight to knock it down again. This time she really put all her weight on Arthur’s head. Someone count Arthur out!
Tara finally stepped back, leading to more pats and rubs.
