Elephants are beautiful, affectionate, and loving creatures, which we know is true. But did you know that these majestic giants also love to have a bit of fun? Well, they decided to create their own elephant slide in this adorable video.
While observing an elephant herd near the Sand River gate in Maasai Mara, Kenya, the conservation team from Elephant Voices noticed a herd of elephants frolicking.
The team found that the playful creatures had created a small elephant that slides down a muddy hill. In the video, we see two elephants peering over a muddy precipice before one decides to slide down.
At that moment, the other elephant decided to join. But it wasn’t just two of them – all the elephants, big and small, decided to give the slide a bash.
This elephant slide has attracted the attention of all the elephants at the sanctuary.
Each one had its own technique and way of going down the mudslide. Some are indeed more graceful than others, but they all looked as if there were a blast.
At first, it was just baby elephants playing in the mud. But then we saw some older members of the family join in the fun. Who can blame them? It looked like it was going to be a blast.
What I like the most is how each elephant has its own slide handling technique. Some go gracefully, others struggle, while some start and then regret everything.
In fact, one of the larger elephants manages to step right down the mudslide without breaking a sweat.
Either way, I could have watched this video all day. Imagine witnessing this in real life. It would be amazing.
Don’t forget to watch as the whole herd tries to handle the muddy elephant’s slip in the video below. Also, at Happiest, we want to hear all of your opinions. So let us know what you think of the article in the comments section.
