Amusing footage shows a baby elephant slapping a man’s head with his trunk to ask for food.

The hungry jumbo repeatedly tapped mahout Waranyu Mueanrat to ask for some sugar cane stalk in Surin province, Thailand on January 3.

Waranyu said the the two-year-old male elephant named Buaban was trying to get his attention so he could be fed.

Waranyu said: ‘Buaban only lightly hits my head but it becomes a bit stronger when I don’t respond to her. She knows exactly what to do when she’s hungry.’
