Cheeky baby elephant tries to steal her best friend’s phone from his hand

This baby elephant is definitely a nosy parker – screwing her trunk while trying to steal a phone from her human friend.

The playful mammal, called Uli, was filmed snuggling up with her friend, Wanda, as he tried 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 was 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 malnourished and abandoned in a mammal training camp.
