Sometimes it’s better to use what you’ve got for fun than what it was actually designed for.

This 2-week-old elephant at the Reid Park Zoo in Tucson is still learning how to use her trunk, and instead of getting water like she’s supposed to, she’s doing something you might recognize from public outings with young children.

The older elephant is ignoring her, but dammit if she’ll have her moment of fun. Enjoy that small act of rebellion while you can. Soon enough, you’ll only be using that water for practical purposes.
