Adorable elephant enjoys splashing in river


This is the adorable moment a jumbo enjoyed splashing in a river on a heated afternoon in Thailand.

The male elephant, Khun-ngen, was seen swimming and rubbing its body over the bank to cool down from the hot weather in Surin province on September 12. 

Khun-ngen, excited over the sight of the water, dipped his whole body into the river and swam happily.

The jumbo was born in an elephant camp in the province and was raised by one of the local mahout, Surachai Inphong. 

Surachai said: ‘Khun-ngen loves the water a lot. I bring him to the river in the afternoon every day when the weather gets warmer.’
