Bathing your baby for the first time is an emotional moment for parents. In most cases, parents are so afraid to do something that might hurt their child in the process, bath time is often reduced to a quick wash using the softest sponge they can find.
Well, in the animal world, things are less complicated. Animal parents rely on their instincts more than anything else, as you can see in the video below.
The clip was posted by Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai, Thailand, a rescue and rehabilitation center and committed to saving and protecting elephants.
The clip you’re about to watch shows the hilarious moment of a baby elephant is introduced to water for the first time, and his response is sure to be a big smile to last you through the day.
Although the baby elephant was clearly amazed at what was happening to him, the fact that his mother was right next to her served as a small reassurance that everything would be okay in the end.
After getting used to the new sensations he experienced, the baby elephant began to be happier and enjoy his bathing. You can watch the lovely footage here:
