Baby elephant playing with birds will instantly brighten your day

Baby elephants are a recipe for cuteness. But a baby elephant playing with a flock of birds? That’s even better.

In case you’ve ever wondered what the word “gamboling” looks like, this is it. This is one happy elephant.

Imagine coming across this on your drive to work in the morning. It’s the one traffic delay you’d never be sad to see.
