Baby elephant is so excited at the prospect of a wash it dives head-first into tub… and then runs off with the hose

Bathing an animal, particularly a large one, is a strenuous task, as anyone who has attempted it can attest. However, an elephant named Double Trouble from The Royal Elephant Kraal and Village in Thailand demonstrated that it can also be an enjoyable experience. The elephant enthusiastically immersed itself in the tub, as depicted in the images on the left and top right, and frolicked around while being showered with a hose, as shown in the bottom right image. This incident highlights the potential for animals to derive pleasure from activities that are typically considered arduous.
