It is a lovely sweet video, but makes me wonder - where or what happened this baby elephant's mum, elephant families are naturally very close ones.  Killed - or was their relationship forcibly broken by mahuts giving baby an electric shock each time he wanted to be near his own mum?  Baby elephants are often taken to be used as tourist attractions by mahuts.

That was wonderful it watch... just wondering how much salt water an elephant can have to drink- (not finding that anywhere)- lets hope it doesnt have the same effect it has on humans.


Because, you would think if it was that fun and healthy- it would be a common sight- since elephants spend most of their lives migrating looking for water....suprisingly not many show up at oceans.

Maybe s/he was on holiday at the beach and mum and dad were sunbathing. The mere fact this was filmed suggests to me there was nothing untoward but I could be wrong. What is obvious is this is one happy little elephant.

just wondering if elehants can safely drink salt water, is all

Nyack , great minds think alike, I too wondered about that, then I watched the baby again, he/she only dipped her/his trunk in the sea water, hardly any was drank, so I guess, as this was a special occasion, like us a little sea water would'nt hurt , bet the baby had a big drink of fresh water available, anyone taking the trouble to let  the baby play care's for it's welfare, bet the baby elephant had an overall de-sea cleaner later lol , we care Nyack or worry oops not meaning others dont, absolutely no offense meant , fantastic warriors here for our animals wild and domestic , I salute you all >>>> quick exit , love x wendy k x

Yea, I guess- never forget baby elephant are captured and forced to perform circus tricks.

Am the only one who noticed when the elephant attepted to leave the water it was ushered back in- and by what- we dont know- because they dont show us everything on that beach. For all we really know, tickets could have been sold for the show. Why dont they show us the wonderful people caring for the elephant?

For myself, when I see something highly unusal on Youtube, I wonder if it wasnt made specifically for youtube.

great vid,thanks

Nyack,you reminded me of my scuba diving test.

down at seventy feet, the instructor pulled the regulator out of my mouth, I wasn't ready and swallowed a ton of salt water.

When I retrieved my gear and reassembled myself ( that is the test,to see if you can)

I barfed into my regulator,and the instructor immeditately passed me with high grades.

off topic,sorry

just had to share that funny moment.
