Adorable Baby Elephant Brothers Test the Waters of First Bubble Bath

Tukada, a four-month-old baby Asian elephant at the Rosamond Gifford Zoo in Syracuse, New York, had his first bubble bath on Saturday, February 11.

Yaad, Tukada’s twin, “preferred to stay on dry ground” as his brother splashed around in an inflatable pool.

Video posted by the Rosamond Gifford Zoo, which they said was captured on Saturday, shows Tukada slipping and sliding in the bubble bath as Yaad watches.

The zoo noted that “knowing how much baby elephants love water, it won’t be long before Yaad joins in the fun!” Credit: Friends of the Rosamond Gifford Zoo via Storyful
