A heartwarming video captures the beautiful moment a baby elephant cozies up to a tourist at an elephant sanctuary in Thailand. The tourist is seen sitting on the muddy ground, quickly joined by a playful elephant calf eager to get closer to her.
Onlookers can’t help but chuckle with delight as the baby elephant makes itself comfortable on the woman’s lap. A man remarks that she appears to be enjoying the unique experience.
The restless elephant struggles to sit still, shifting around and momentarily settling on the woman’s lower legs, which is not the most comfortable position.

However, the charming calf soon readjusts and returns to the woman’s thighs, where she affectionately pets and strokes the young animal. When the elephant rolls back onto her shins, causing her to exclaim in discomfort, a nearby observer steps in to lend a helping hand.
Unwilling to give up, the baby elephant rolls forward for another snuggle and pat down. A second tourist takes the opportunity to pat the lovable calf as well.
Andrew Way shared the video on YouTube; he recounted his unforgettable experience: “On my last trip to Thailand, I visited an elephant sanctuary, and this two-month-old baby elephant just made my day. He was so loving and playful, and hey, how often do you get to have an elephant sitting in your lap?”
