Playful baby elephant loves ploughing his face through the mud in South Africa

This is the adorable moment a baby elephant in Kruger National Park plunged his face into the wet mud to cool down.

The clip, filmed on August 26, shows the calf having the time of his life playing and covering himself with mud.

“To our amusement, the little elephant crouched down on its forelegs and shoved his face into the mud. With his bum in the air, the baby elephant then used his back legs to plough forward, dragging his whole face through the mud!” The filmer Edrich, told Newsflare.
