While dogs and cats may not always enjoy bath time, one baby elephant has made it clear that getting squeaky clean is one of his favorite pastimes. As his caretaker fills the red tub, the little guy can’t seem to wait to get in – and what cameras captured next will melt your heart.
Taken at the Ayutthaya Elephant Palace & Royal Kraal in Thailand, the little elephant appropriately named “Double Trouble” gives onlookers a show they will never forget as he hilariously enjoys his bath to the fullest in the viral video. Slipping and sliding around the tub, he plays in the water without a care in the world. Splashing and sliding clumsily into the red bin, Double Trouble will have you in stitches with his adorable bath time antics.
While his caretaker attempts to rinse him down, he even grabs the hose to take charge, playfully swinging it about as he watches the water splash the crowd gathering around him. It isn’t until he tries to hop back into the tub that things go hilariously wrong, and when you see his clumsy next move you will quickly understand why! Watch the precious moment the baby elephant dives headfirst into the pool of water in the video below – his reaction is the best part!
The baby appeared to be “hiding,” its limbs collapsed around its body in an alarming fashion.
They quickly stopped the car and cautiously approached the needy deer. As they scanned the nearby woods, they spotted the fawn’s mother peering at them from afar.
When Steve took a closer look at the baby, he realized that it was still breathing and appeared healthy – and what he did next was nothing short of extraordinary. Now people from all corners of the globe are hailing Steve as a wildlife hero!
Taking a risk, he decided that if the animal was going to have any chance of survival he would need to intervene fast. As cameras rolled, he quietly and carefully approached the helpless creature, slowly bending down to see how it would react to his presence.
What he did next left the entire group in awe, as he gently scooped up the baby fawn and brought it to the nearby woods to be near mom.
While this man clearly saved the fawn’s life, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife says that you should generally leave newborns alone.
“The advice to anyone encountering a fawn lying quietly alone in the woods is to leave it alone. Mother will be nearby and will be taking care of it once you move away. If you have handled the fawn, rub an old towel in the grass and wipe the fawn to remove human scent.
Using gloves, return the fawn to where it was found. Fawns can often be returned to their mothers if taken back to where they were found within eight hours. If a fawn appears cold, weak, thin, or injured, and its mother does not return in approximately eight hours, it may be orphaned. In such a case, you can call a local rehabilitator (look under ‘Animal’ or ‘Wildlife’ in your phone directory).”
Even though some newborn fawns may look abandoned, Momma may be nearby and within earshot. Handling a fawn in a non-emergency situation (unlike this one) could deter the mother from caring for her baby!
Thankfully Steve was in the right place at the right time!
See how this incredible rescue ends in the video below – this took my breath away!
She and her parenting buddies are ready to show the world their dancing chops with a fun hip-hop routine. They’ve been called into the limelight and it’s all come down to this – would their children appreciate the moves? Or, would they be embarrassed by their boogying parents?
While dancing was certainly something Mom loved to do during her single hay-days, the dance floor faded away when the cribs were delivered. She ditched the party dress for a nursing shirt and the high heels for a pair of sensible (but cute) flats.
When kids came, it was time to put the hard-partying, nights on the dancefloor aside. But, even as the years passed, Mom’s interest in dancing never died. She quietly boogied around the kitchen while cooking and bopped around the soccer field with her headphones in. So when she heard of an all-parent hip-hop dance opportunity during her daughter’s competition, she jumped at it!
Mom rushed to the stage and stood in line with the rest of the parents. Her daughter took the camera and said, “Let’s see if my mom’s any good.” She had no idea Mom was, in fact, a hip-hop dancing genius.
The crowd roared in appreciation as they watched her (and the rest of the parents) twirl, jump and twist around the dance floor. Mom couldn’t keep her excitement contained and showed off an ear-to-ear smile the whole time! Take a peek at this impressive performance for yourself below. We can only imagine how good her daughter is at dancing when Mom is this talented!
