This adorable moment of two baby elephants was s.potted using their trunks to s.lap each other in the head during a play fi.ght.
The animals had been eating plants before tea.sing each other under the trees at a national park in Kanchanaburi province, western Thailand, on October 30.
Footage shows one of the young animals tapping its friend’s head with a tree trunk before the other retaliates and hits back.
The pair were part of a herd of 50 foraging elephants as they were filmed by a local wildlife enthusiast, identified only as Prathom.
Prathom said: ‘The baby elephants are very friendly and cute.’
‘I am de.lighted to see them enjoying life in their wild environment.’
Thailand has at least 2,000 elephants in the wild and a similar number in captivity.
They are kept in sanctuaries, elephant parks, zoos, resorts, or private owners using them for weddings and re.ligious ce.remonies.
