Joyful Playtime: Baby Elephants’ Delightful Trunk Slap Showdown


This is the endearing sᴄᴇɴᴇ of two newborn elephants playingfully smacking each other in the head with their trunks. The animals were eating plants when they began making fun of one another on October 30 in a national park in the western Thai province of Kanchanaburi.

One of the juvenile animals is seen in the video lightly beating its friend with its trunk before the other animal strikes back. A local wildlife enthusiast named Prathom captured footage of the pair as they were foraging as part of a herd of 50 elephants.

The young elephants are pleasant and adorable, according to Prathom. He was really delighted to see the baby elephants enjoying life in their natural habitat since they were so cute and sweet.


Young elephants twist their trunks while engaging in playғɪɢʜᴛing, which helps them learn how to have complete control over them. In addition, they are imitating adult behavior as this is a greeting.

When they are younger than three months old, they can’t control their trunks and just flop around, but as they get bigger, they must be able to utilize them to sip water, just like people would use an arm, hand, and straw.

At least 2,000 elephants live in the wild and a similar number are kept in captivity in Tʜᴀɪʟᴀɴᴅ. They are housed in sanctuaries, elephant parks, zoos, resorts for tourists, or with private owners who rent them out for religious rituals and weddings.
