Anger is a normal part of life for parents with young children. Sometimes, children are too tired and can’t control their emotions. Other times, they don’t have a word to say what’s wrong and so they express their displeasure with a tantrum.
While children’s tantrums are not usually adorable, when animals have them, they can be extremely lovable.
That’s just the case for a little baby elephant!
In this amusing video, an adorable baby elephant goes on a rampage as its herd crosses the road.
As the video begins, Harry Belafonte’s Banana Boat Song begins to play in the background. The screen then opens with the baby elephant crossing the left side of an African road.
When the baby elephant came to the side of the road, it fell down on the long Sahara grass.
I wonder what made the little guy so upset.
Maybe mom said he was not allowed to play with his animal friends, or maybe he’s just tired from the walking and needs a nap.
When an adult elephant passed by, seemingly not paying much attention to the young one, the elephant plunged into the road again.
After this throw, the little guy spends his time rolling along the way.
He flung his small legs into the air, bouncing his weight in every direction. The kid continues to kick for about 30 seconds while waiting for another adult elephant to cross her path.
Throughout it all, we hear Belafonte singing, “Daylight comes and I wanna go home.”
Aren’t all these too related?
After the baby’s kicking part, another adult elephant – who I assume is his mother – made her way towards the crossing herd.
The mother overtakes the child, completely unfazed by his behavior. The baby quickly removed his limbs, running to catch up with her when the video ended.
This little guy’s rampage has been viewed over 28 million times!
Everyone on YouTube loves this adorable little elephant. One YouTube commenter humorously wrote:
“When your kid annoys you in public and you pass by like that, it’s not my kid lol.”
Another imagined a mother-baby conversation:
“His parents: Only humans have tantrums
Baby elephant: “Aight hold my trunk”
According to AnswersVideos, these tantrums often happen with baby elephants. These animals often throw themselves in the mud when they are upset. Anyone with a toddler can relate to that!
We are so happy that this baby elephant had his mom there to help calm him down during his tantrum. Check out the sweet video below!
