A Graceful Little Elephant Bobs for Apples While Going for a Relaxing Swim at the Oregon Zoo

Lily Bobbing for Apples

On the day before Thanksgiving 2017, a surprisingly graceful little Asian elephant named Lily went for a relaxing dip in the pool at the Oregon Zoo. While she enjoying her swim, her human caretakers carefully threw cut slices of apples into the water for Lily to discover. They also left a number of apple slices poolside for a refreshing treat when Lily came up for air, which she did with great gusto.
