Elephants, they’re just like us—always on the hunt for a good deal.

Meet Buba the elephant. Her circus recently happened to be set up near a Dutch car boot sale, so she decided to take a stroll and scope some of the bargains. Check out how she peacefully walks through the rows of sellers’ tables. If this was Jumanji, she might have aggressively stomped through. But nope, she calmly moseyed through.

Almost as cute as that baby elephant playing with birds
