Baby elephants like to play

EASTERN CAPE, SOUTH AFRICA – UNDATED: A herd of young elephants bundle on top of each other at the Addo Elephant National Park in Eastern Cape, South Africa.

Elephant Pile UpYOU wouldn’t want to find yourself at the bottom of this playful bundle…as four baby elephants weighing up to 300kg pile on top of each other. The unusual moment was spotted by Ayesha Cantor, 46, in Addo Elephant National Park, Eastern Cape, South Africa, during a day trip. The African elephants had been sipping water on the banks of the Ghwarrie Dam, as their mother cooled off. But just like their human counterparts, the youngsters playful intentions soon turned into some rough and tumble – much to the annoyance of the herds matriarch. After a few moments of pilling on, she swiftly marched in to break up the bundle, before the poor tyke at the bottom was injured., Place: South Africa, Model Release: No or not aplicable, Credit line: Profimedia.com, Barcroft Media
