The heartwarming footage, uploaded by user NancyBelal, inspired YouTube user Brendan Townsend to comment:
“Whatever the circumstances behind this baby elephant and the scar on its face, take heart that it’s getting the freedom to enjoy itself and have a great time.
“Man is the most sickening and twisted animal of all, but the better amongst us need a moment to lighten up and take pleasure from moments like these. That beautiful animal is enjoying itself and that’s all that matters in this brief moment of time.”
The playful baby elephant made a real splash as it frolicked in the ocean on the Thai island of Phuket.
