At two weeks old, this baby elephant is already eager to get outside to play with toys, in the water, and with his family.
The Artis Zoo in Amsterdam was the scene of a sweet moment for one baby elephant and his family. The two-week-old elephant played games and explored his enclosure.
Like a typical young child, the baby elephant stuck close to his mother, occasionally hiding and walking beneath her for protection.
Soon, however, his curiosity got the better of him and he began venturing forth more and more. He played in the water and tried to learn what to do with a ball.
After some time, the baby elephant settled into a lovely game with his sister, pushing the balls back and forth across the water to each other.
It was a charming moment caught on video and a sign that this baby elephant will have a bright future ahead of him in this family.
