While visiting Mana Pools National Park in northern Zimbabwe, I met this fellow.

And boy was he hilarious!  He was rolling around in the mud, cooling off and just so endearing.

It's almost like he's showing a little attitude!

While readers of the blog know I have a love of elephants, it's impossible not to heart them when they just face plant in the mud and roll around oblivious to the world.

Here's a bit of cooling off at the Kanga Camp in Mana Pools:

A lot of elephants in Zimbabwe, while drinking, rock their front leg back and forth.
