There is nothing like watching elephants in their natural habitat. Whether they are playing with each other, bonding with one another, or taking a bath it can be utterly heartwarming to watch this gentle species simply just exist. In addition, it is fun to watch them behave as humans do in their own unique ways. Bothering their parents or siblings, running around, or just giving each other a loving hug it’s beautiful to see that animals share these characteristics with us in their own ways.Source: Photo by Frans Van Heerden from Pexels
In a video from CP Wild Lanka, they capture a wonderfully long video of baby elephants during playtime and every minute is worth the watch. When you first tune in you see that two baby elephants of the group cannot stay away from one another no matter how many times their parents pull them away from each other. Their playtime consists of them getting running starts to charge towards one another, gently lifting their legs to kick one another, wrapping their trunks around one another, and even jumping on each other.Source: Youtube
At one point after one of the parents reprimands one of the baby elephants one decides to try and hide while taking a nap under the protection of their parents stomach. Plopping down after playtime to catch some quick rest time before the next playtime.Source: Youtube
But the nap is short-lived and then the baby elephant is back up to running around and playing with whoever wants to join in.Source: Youtube
Not only is the precious playtime captured on this video but also cherished bonding time with baby and parent. As the baby and parent touch trunks and look into the eyes of each other you can simply feel the love and happiness through the picture. A bond between baby and parent truly something special even with animals.Source: Youtube
Even some of the seemingly older elephants, due to size, join in on the fun by running around with each other and using their trunks to touch the other.Source: Youtube
Once more, just as human children do the one elephant crawls under the parent’s legs while they were in the middle of eating.Source: Youtube
Then it’s back to more playtime with more playmates joining in on the fun.Source: Youtube
When the video ends it cuts to a precious moment between two elephants that absolutely touches the heart. They stand side by side leaning on one another. Again simply through the photo, we can see all the love and connection that this family of elephants has with one another.Source: Youtube
A special video that will brighten anyone’s day while simultaneously warming their heart. Those who also enjoyed this video commented,
