    In the video below a baby elephant is amusing itself playing in the mud in the Kruger National Park in South Africa.

    You may think that this adorable baby elephant is just too naughty, as it disobeys its mother and continues to play with mud. However, rolling in the mud is not only funny but is also a good way to cool down. In addition, the thick layer of mud on elephant's skin functions as a sun screen, which is extremely important for their sensitive skin.
