Elephant at Play

I am such a sucker for elephant videos.  This one is only three minutes and I guarantee a smile! The elephants in India appeared to be well cared for because they were their handlers source of  income. They were bathed daily,well fed, wore elephant jewelry of necklaces and anklets, and their faces were painted.  But they were always chained to keep them from wandering off when not in use for the entertainment of the tourists.  I love that the young elephant in the video is  not chained and is playing freely.


Have you seen an elephant play?  Are you surprised at how like a puppy or little child this gentle giant is as she plays?
