A cheeky baby elephant uses his worn-out friend as a chair

This is the moment when a cheeky baby elephant takes a breather and uses his old friend as a chair.

The young animal pokes at a companion with a trunk before sitting on him in the Serengeti National Park, Tanzania.

But despite the weight on him, the sleeping elephant did not seem to mind and continued to lie down.

Holidaymaker Julie Lindenmayer, who took the photo, said: ” thought the elephant was initially interested in his friend.”

‘We are all a bit worried about the person lying down. We thought he might be sick or injured, but when he got up, he ate some grass and looked fine. ”

Working as a zoo sitter, Lindenmayer sees many wild animals. Still, the sight of an elephant sitting on its friend amazes her.

The pictures were captured by 34-year-old holidaymaker Julie Lindenmayer, a zookeeper from Miami in Florida.

From Miami, Florida, Lindenmayer added: ‘A scene like this is what will stay with me all my life.

“It’s easy to forget how lucky you’ve been seeing them so often, but seeing these animals in their natural habitats is astonishing. Especially when they exhibit such incredible behavior.”‘
