    New Delhi (Sputnik): Elephants' love of water is no secret but this cheeky baby pachyderm took its audience by surprise as it appeared to chuckle and raise its trunk after giving itself a good wash.

    An adorable baby elephant had a frolicking good time when it spotted a high-speed sprinkler in a park and decided to give itself a good cleaning.

    In a video, the elephant calf can be seen washing off its backside and trunk then lying down in a puddle of water as a crowd of people gathered to watch the jumbo enjoying the bath.

    The video has been shared by an Indian Forest Service officer based in the state of Odisha.
