It’s time for a splash! This is not the first time a baby elephant has stolen the hearts of all social media users out there. To add to the list, here is a recent incident from a nature park in Thailand. The elephants in that area seem especially free and happy.
This time, the baby elephant saw a fountain gushing from the ground. And like all small children, she invested in it with her childlike curiosity. Who hasn’t seen children gathering around, running and playing in the rain or in front of a spray of water?
The incident was caused by a broken pipe supplying water for elephants in Thailand Nature Park. As a result, the pressure of the water caused it to flow out like a fountain. For baby elephants, it also doubled as a shower that magically emerging from the ground.
After noticing the sprinkler, she immediately walked towards the hole created by the broken water pipe. Then her curiosity and playfulness took over as she began to play with the water and the hole from where it was coming.
The baby elephant’s antics were especially welcome because of the summer heat. This year has seen record high temperatures in several parts of the world. That’s not all, as scientists predict it will only continue to climb over the next few years due to climate change. So, this baby elephant is no exception when every animal out there is trying to figure out how to stay cool in the blistering heat.
For humans, we have destinations like water parks and swimming pools available. We even have machines like air conditioners to keep us cool at home. However, for animals, all they need is the embrace of nature. One way or another, nature’s creatures always seem to find a way to handle the weather without the need for humans or any equipment.
And this baby elephant is not the only one to appear there. A few days ago, an Indian photographer captured a small songbird taking a relaxing bath in the petals of a flower. It also showed how nature had designed everything for those who need it.
However, to get back to this baby elephant, this incident happened in the Nature Park of Thailand. It can be seen that the baby elephant is having the most wonderful time of her life. The pipe supplying water had broken and burst at the Elephant Nature Park.
The shower, which continuously flushed like a fountain, even formed a small puddle around it for the baby elephant to splash in. The park’s baby elephant is named – Wan Mai. As soon as she noticed that, she went to investigate the stream. Soon, she can be seen trying to stop the water flow or just mesmerized by the fountain.
Elephant Nature Park originally posted the video to Twitter. In the video caption, they said that Wan Mai was having fun with the broken water pipe. It was her personal fountain, and the privilege of having one made her more playful and even happier. Of course, the video is heartwarming because of the baby elephant’s joy while playing with the water.
Video soon took over the microblogging site. It didn’t take long to be liked more than 5,000 times. Most of the comments can only praise the cuteness of the baby elephant when she played around.
Wan Mai has a great fun with the broken water pipe. She is very happy and more playful with her privilege fountain.
