This is the adorable moment a baby elephant appears to wriggle on the floor with laughter while his older brother tickles him with his trunk.
The duo was caught on camera by wildlife photographer Lee-Anne Robertson from Sundays River Valley, South Africa.
The playful animals were seen climbing over each other during their antics at Addo Elephant park last month.
Lee-Anne said: ‘I thought he was adorable, just like any baby. He was full of energy and looking for someone to play with.
‘After a while, he threw himself down on the ground, and his older brother came over and started touching him playfully with his trunk, as if to ask him to come to play, to which the baby responded and got up and started climbing on his brother.’
