Bathing a baby for the first time is an emotional experience for parents. Bath time is usually reduced to a quick wash using the softest sponge they can find because parents are afraid of doing something that might hurt their baby during the process.
Things are less complicated in the animal kingdom. As you can see in the video below, animal parents rely on their instincts more than anything else. The Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai, Thailand, posted the video, which is a rescue and rehabilitation center dedicated to saving and protecting elephants.
The video you’re about to watch shows a baby elephant being introduced to water for the first time, and his reaction is guaranteed to put a big smile on your face for the rest of the day. Although the baby elephant is clearly taken aback by what is happening to him, the fact that his mother is right by his side provides some comfort in the knowledge that everything will work out in the end.
The baby elephant begins to have more fun and enjoy his bath after he becomes accustomed to the new sensations he is experiencing. Here’s a link to the adorable video:
