A photographer has captured the hilarious scene of a mother elephant po.oping on her following calf.
Ivan Glaser, 57, was visiting Kruger Park, South Africa, when he noticed a baby elephant following its mother.
However, when he started snapping the cute moment, the mother elephant began to go to the toilet.
But unbeknownst to the mother, she was actually pe.eing on her baby’s head!
“This small elephant herd crossed the road in front of our car with the adults ahead and the young running close behind their mothers,” said Ivan.
“I noticed one of the moms lift her tail, and I just knew what was going to happen next, and she did!
“It was absolutely hilarious, especially given the fact that the baby didn’t even try to get out after the first bo.mb hit.
“Later, I learned that this is quite normal behavior and that one actually eats adult’s dung because it has bacteria that the baby’s stomach has not yet produced.
“I love watching elephants – they are amazing animals.
“It’s always a thrill when you’re driving through an amusement park, and you come across a herd of elephants near the road, especially when they have young ones.”
