"Things You Wouldn't Know If We Didn't Blog Intermittently."
"I'm stuck you guys! STUCK! Why aren't you helping! I don't have hands and I can't climb out! You're really not going to help? I guess I'll try bailing out the water. YOU GUYS. STOP LAUGHING AT ME AND GET ME OUT OF THIS HOLE BEFORE I DROWN."
While I see how it's cute, it made me sad because this baby should have a huge watering hole to bath in instead of inserting part of it's body at a time...
From the text of a companion YouTube video of the same little elephant:"There was a river for it to swim in, but it preferred the drinking basin. It was at an animal sanctuary in Thailand because its mom died in a landmine in Cambodia." (Via discussion thread at Metafilter)http://www.metafilter.com/119273/splash-splash-splash
I think they need to get him the next size tub soon. :-)
I was thinking the same thing. Looks like he's trying to get his entire person under the water so as to actually enjoy it, but that little hole just isn't big enough and he's just going crazy in the attempt.
