Baby elephants slap each other over the head with their trunks in an adorable playing moment

This is a lovely moment where 2 baby elephants are found stabbing each other on the head with their trunks in a playing fight.

On October 30, the animals ate the plants before they began teasing each other under the bush at a national park in Kanchanaburi province, western Thailand.

The video shows a baby elephant lightly hitting a friend on the head with a trunk before the other retaliated and fought back.

The pair was part of a herd of foraging 50 elephants. They were recorded by a local wildlife enthusiast, identified only as Prathom.

Prathom said: “The baby elephants are adorable and friendly.”
