Elephants Play at Arizona Zoo After Days of Heavy Rain

Elephants at a zoo in Tucson, Arizona, were unfazed by days of rain and flash flooding in the area as they played in a pool in the rainfall on September 24.

In a video uploaded by the Reid Park Zoo, the elephants can be seen bathing in a pool in their enclosure as rain drizzled around them.

The zoo welcomed the rainy weather and said the herd loves to play on wet days. “Come join us, and lots of other animals, as they soak in this beautiful weather,” it said on its Facebook page.
