Baby elephants, and even adults, love playing in water. That is evident from the countless viral videos on the internet.
In a video that went viral this year, an elephant was seen playing with a water sprinkler. In the 28-second video, the elephant is seen getting each part of its body drenched with water that was oozing out of the sprinkler.
The clip ends with the elephant calf letting water rush directly on its face and trunk. It is then seen joyfully lying in a puddle.
In another incident from June this year, an elephant decided to take a nap in the pool.
The elephant was caught on camera having a lie-down in water. The adorable giant was found slumbering in the pool of Fort Worth Zoo in Texas. In a video posted by the Fort Worth Zoo, one can see the elephant lift his trunk out of the water to take a breath while lounging in the splash pool.
A few weeks ago, another picture of a group of elephants standing in a water body, probably a river, went viral.
