Playful juvenile elephant

One of the things I learned about elephants is that they are incredibly playful and intelligent animals. They could see us watching them at the watering hole and occasionally they would try to interact with us. I especially liked this little juvenile elephant that danced around on the far side of the watering hole. He pranced back and forth, flipped his trunk over his tusk, and flapped his ears at us. I’m sure the elephant was doing all this for us, because he was completely focused on us the whole time! I tried asking some of the elephant experts about his behaviour, but they just shrugged. “He’s just playing!”
