This is the delightful moment when a baby elephant “discovers” its trunk and shakes its head in despair.
Funny footage shows the young animal spinning his trunk through the air and swinging it back and forth as it tries to get a grip on the facial feature.
At some point, the boy even tries to step on his trunk – apparently confused about its use.
Mario Paul filmed the adorable video in the Pretoriuskop region of South Africa’s famous Kruger National Park.
Hilarious footage shows the elephant looking seriously confused as it stands among his family.
With his ears flapping in the wind, the little animal twirls and swings his trunk before attempting to use it to grab at the nearby grassy verge.
Meanwhile, the surrounding adult elephants seem unimpressed by the baby’s confusion.
An elephant’s trunk is an extension of the upper lip and nose and is used to communicate and handle objects, including food.
