Elephant calf at Taronga Zoo

The calf's been busy trying to climb the rocks in the paddock. He's mastered getting on top of the logs and now he's trying the rocks which are as tall as him.

He's finding the rocks a little tricky as his front feet slip off, but he's very persistent. Just as he gets half way up the rock, he slides off again.

The elephants got some more soil added to their dirt mound and the calf has already being trying to reach the top. He clambers up, but the soil slips under his feet.

He squeaked once when he tumbled off the mound and mum and the aunties rushed over to check that he was ok.
