Melbourne Zoo – The Elephants!
The elephant area was UH-MAY-ZING! I don’t remember the last time I had the chance to see an elephant, and the fact that they currently have a baby elephant is even more special.
Man Jai, who is now just over 6 months old is utterly hilarious. I had no idea baby elephants were so derpy, but he had everyone in fits of giggles! From running around silly, face planting in the dirt to playing in the water, he wasn’t a shy elephant!
When we arrived one of the larger elephants was fully submerged in the 4.5m deep pool, you could not see a single inch before she popped back above the water. Man Jai stayed to the shallow end.
The trail of the elephants has 3 connecting paddocks and 2 barns, you walk through the ‘elephant crossing’ areas, in what my boyfriend commented looked ‘very Jurassic park’, in a good way though.
I leave you with a video of the cuteness is action!
