Most animals hate bath time with a passion, but this baby elephant refuses to follow the crowd – he absolutely loves it.
Captured on camera at the Elephant Nature Park in Mae Taeng District, Chiang Mai Province, Northern Thailand, is the moment an elephant calf splashes about in the tub.
The cute footage shows the young mammal diving head-first into the bath full of water before falling over onto his side.

Fun, fun, fun! The elephant rests on the edge of the tub and kicks his front legs excitedly before standing up
He rests on the edge of the tub and kicks his front legs – causing the water to splash from the basin and onto the floor.
Later the baby elephant is filmed standing with all four of his legs in the tub while submerging his trunk in the water.
He struggles to fit in the small tub due to his size and after giving up trying to sit down in the water turns around on the spot.
The movement causes water to splash over the side once again, which only prompts the mammal to get more excited – he kicks out with one of his back legs.

Later he tries to sit down again before sucking the water up in his tiny trunk and spraying it out to soak the area around him.
The video concludes with the baby elephant getting quite the shock when his mum approaches the bath tub and pulls it to the left with her trunk, with the youngster still inside.
The movement causes the little mammal to fall over on to his side as the tub is taken away from him.
However the crafty youngster appears to have the last laugh and can be seen walking straight under his mother back towards his plaything.

This is not the first time a baby elephant has been filmed splashing around in a bath.
In March of this year an elephant was filmed having a great time in the tub while at The Royal Elephant Kraal and Village in Ayutthaya, Thailand.
In the clip the young mammal bathes with much enthusiasm while a Danish tourist struggles to wash him down with a hose.
