Playful elephants enjoy mucky sibling wrestle in river mud

A baby elephant escapes the afternoon heat in a mudbath, before his brother playfully amuses himself by holding down the squirming elephant with his trunk and leg.

No matter the species siblings always annoy each other, as is apparent in this video caught during a safari at Kruger National Park, South Africa on March 9.

The filmer says that "We found this behaviour hilarious and couldn’t believe that the young elephant was actually on purpose preventing his brother from getting up from the mud."

In the end, the playful male lost interest and indulged himself in the mud alongside his brother.
