Four Baby Elephant Siblings Frolic And Pile On Top Of Each Other When Their Mother Is Away

Baby elephants are the most adorable and cheerful animals on the planet. They actually know how to create fun for themselves. Play with the mud, snuggle up to their beloved humans, hang out with their friends and siblings – these are all their favorite games. And we, can’t stop smiling when looking at these playful young animals.

Four baby elephants in this story just do the same. The siblings decided to have some fun when their mother was drinking water on the bank nearby. But their fun is quite “rude”. The younger bumped into each other before deciding to pile on top of each other. They look like playful and energetic kids, right?

The elephants kept frolicking together until their mother came back. She immediately broke up the fun before the poor baby elephant at the bottom was injured.

Her mother’s intervention is essential. The calves weigh around 300kg each. It means that the baby at the bottom carries a pile that is three times as heavy as it. It can’t bear that task.

It’s not strange to see two young elephants playing in such a short time. But when it comes to a group of four, the fun will get the Internet stunned. They even play for a long period of time. Who can resist this cuteness?

These adorable moments were captured at the water banks of the Ghwarrie Dam in Addo Elephant National Park, Eastern Cape, South Africa,

Ayesha Cantor, who took these photos, was during a day trip then. She was sitting at the dam when she spotted four elephant siblings. They were engaged in their game and didn’t hide the excitement on their face. It’s so funny and entertaining!

“Just like children, they test their boundaries. Playing will teach them to know their boundaries and how to behave in their family group,” Ayesha said.
