Rumble This is the rare and seemingly undocumented moment a six-month-old elephant was filmed hysterically laughing during a game with her park carer. This is an amazing footage caught by Laura, from Aberdeenshire, UK, captured the uplifting moment at Maeva Elephant Camp, Chiang Mai, Thailand, during a two-month holiday celebrating her graduation from university.
The baby elephant, who was being entertained by one of her closest carers with a plastic bucket, was seen having the time of her life whilst enamored visitors watched on in awe. Don’t you just love baby elephants? They are so adorable!

This is the amazing story of Laura, a student of geology, was moved by the elephant’s innocence and playful nature during a fun-filled day of feeding, caring and petting the 14,000-pound animals at the elephant clinic. She says that it made her so happy to see the elephant obviously having such a good time. They watched the baby being playful, relaxed and care-free all day.

Laura says: She seemed to be quite a cheeky little girl, and at one point even tried to eat my top! The elated elephant’s mum can be seen keeping a close eye on her young whilst she too is also being cared for by a park keeper. After originally being posted online in 2014, Laura recently re-shared the post much to the amusement of her friends. What an amazing story!
