A Clumsy Baby Elephant Gleefully Splashes Around in a Colorful Kiddie Pool on a Hot Summer’s Day

A adorably clumsy 2-month old elephant calf gleefully splashed around in a brightly colored kiddie pool on a hot summer’s day at the Dallas Zoo. This was his first time engaging in such a wonderfully fun activity, but it certainly won’t be the last.

Dallas Zoo’s nearly 2-month-old elephant calf takes his first “dip” in a kiddie pool. Born to mom Mlilo on May 14, this beloved boy is definitely a water baby. As he grows, so will his inflatable pool.
