Two baby elephants were having a play ғɪɢʜᴛ when these cute pictures of them getting tangled up in it were taken. The adorable African elephants were seen in Sᴏᴜᴛʜ Aғʀɪᴄᴀ’s Addo Elephant National Park with their trunks intertwined and gently pressing against one another.
The children were learning how to use and manage their trunks as Anne Laing, 59, a professional photographer, captured them. There are many other species in Addo, but Anne, a resident of Pretoria, Sᴏᴜᴛʜ Aғʀɪᴄᴀ, said that she went there exclusively to shoot elephants.
She always stays in the park from before 7 a.m. till 6 p.m. Driving very slowly and listening for them breaking branches is the best approach to locate elephants in Addo, since the foliage is typically extremely dense.
Anne said that young elephants twisted their trunks while engaging in playғɪɢʜᴛing, which helped them learn how to have complete control over them. In addition, they were imitating adult behavior as that was a greeting. The elephants were also captured drinking and dousing each other with water. After drinking water, they squirted water across their bodies to stay cool.
When they are under three months old, they are unable to control their trunks and simply flop around, but as they grow older, they must be able to use them to sip water, just like humans would do with a hand and straw. Elephants need water because they need to drink every day. Adults can consume up to 150 liters of water each day.
