Our little calf enjoyed his first real bath with mum and aunty Tang Mo inside the barn.
The bath tub is just big enough to fit the calf and two adult elephant feet.
Thong Dee got in first, dunking her front legs in and her little calf followed. He didn’t use his trunk much, but he’s learning to swim. He did a bit of kicking with his legs.
Thong Dee got out and gave Tang Mo a turn in the warm bath with the calf too.
