Mud Bath

Some people pay money to do this at a spa.

Interesting to see adults look after the young ones.

I've seen this one, but I had to watch it again because it's SO CUTE!

Oh now that was adorable! That little one is just so sweet. And I love how the others gave it a helping trunk.

A good lesson there in parenting, isn't it? Really cute video!

I was afraid for the little one for awhile, wondering if he would be able to get out. So was I ever glad to see the big ones helping him! So sweet! If I had an elephant's skin I'd spend a lot of time in the mud! :-)

Very cool video, and it is great to see that a family is a family no matter the species.

I love the comments of the spectators. They seemed to be really concerned and cheered to little one on!

That is really cute. I watched a documentary about elephants. They are very intelligent and very nurturing, and this video just reinforces that!

Thanks for providing me with a warm fuzzy feeling this morning. I'm off to take my mother to the dentist and I needed this. Thanks.

I love that video. I had seen it a few weeks ago. I have never tried a mud bath but I think it might be fun!

I was laughing when the baby got stuck trying to get out of the mud hole and mama and auntie gave him some help.
I tried a mud bath when I was in Israel.... Dead Sea Mud... let's just say it was in interesting experience.

Love watching elephants interact, they are a great herd animal.

I once knew a guy - the most timid person you could ever imagine meeting. He went on safari, and a close encounter with a herd of elephants was a life changing experience for him - totally changed him, amazing.

The little ones really got coated up good!

Cute, thanks for sharing! I'm sure at the spa we're not that many in a mud bath at once... must be fun to get out all by yourself! ;-)
