This is the best game of tag ever! Unless you're the elephant, which then, it's kind of terrible and you're terrible at playing tag.
Alas, the various attempts by this baby elephant (el-infant?) to wake its dog friend are FUTILE, I tell you. The elephant tries poking, prodding, blowing dirt, and even picking the dog's paws up, but to no avail. Even the human's efforts at brushing the canine with a leaf are pretty much useless.
Oh silly baby elephant. Don't you know your adorably whole-hearted attempts to conquer the ball are futile? Thank you Columbus Zoo for not only giving us this video, but also providing the only appropriate music to go along with it. Hats off.
Over at the Oregon Zoo, Rose-Tu and her four-day-old calf had a nice bath and then promptly ruined it by frolicking in a pile of wood chips. Particularly the calf, who is doing exactly what I do when I happen to land drunkenly on a strange bed with a crazy high thread count.
Particularly dreamy since we are currently wearing two sweaters and surrounded by snow.
