In the video, we see a baby elephant – cute enough as is – experience a moment of pure joy playing in the ocean waves.  This baby elephant saw the ocean for the first time on this day and reacted in a precious way.

What is happening here?

The elephant could not stop frolicking! Running in and out of the waves, rolling in the shallow water, and splashing his little trunk to his heart’s desire.  All with an undeniable expression of pure joy on his face!

This adorable event, which certainly brought just as much joy to onlookers, is not that uncommon for elephants. As they adore water! These mighty animals are often seen crossing rivers, sometimes even using their trunks as snorkels.

Elephants Love Water

If this video isn’t enough proof of the joy this little elephant is experiencing, we’ll go a little deeper.  Elephants are known for their high intelligence and exceptional emotional intelligence.

Can elephants experience joy?

Not only do these big softies have incredible memories, but they mourn for their lost siblings and family members, take care of each other in various ways, and of course play when they can!

This video must be one of my favorite moments of pure joy ever captured.  Showing how the small things in life can create wonderful experiences – even for a baby elephant!
