Taking a baby’s first bath is an emotional moment for parents. In most cases, parents are so afraid of doing something bad that might hurt their baby that bath time is usually reduced to a quick wash using the softest sponge parents can find.
Well, in the animal world, things are less complicated. Animal parents rely more on their instinct than on anything else, as you can see in the video below. The clip was posted by the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai, Thailand, which is a rescue and rehabilitation center dedicated and committed to saving and protecting elephants.
The clip you are just about to see shows the hilarious moment a baby elephant gets introduced to water for the first time, and his reaction is sure to put a big smile on your face to last you the entire day. Although the baby elephant is clearly surprised by what is happening to him, the fact that his mom is right there by his side serves as a small reassurance that everything will ultimately be okay. After he gets used to the new sensations he experiences, the baby elephant starts having more fun and enjoying his bath.
