Isn’t He Cute!

Cool dude: The calf looks as thought he is smiling as he confidently strides through the water

Touching base: The calf's feet are aloft as he rolls over during the the hottest heatwave on record for Australia

These pictures featured in The Daily Mail today, of this week old elephant calf who was born at Melbourne Zoo.  At the moment Australia is experiencing high daytime temperatures and so when the keepers thought the calf was safely on his feet they filled the pool and his Mom, Num-Oi, took him in to cool down.

Aren’t the pictures wonderful?  I love elephants.  I was lucky to go to Kenya in 1985 and saw elephants in the wild and it was wonderful.
