Mind of a Young Elephant

I know animals do not act like humans.  I know they do things for their own reasons mostly having to do with food and propagation of the species.  However, it is hard not to imagine this young elephant was doing what many human kids would do when confronted with an obstacle.  Especially when his mother seemed to be herding him towards a bath.

    I like to think he did what he did because kids act like kids everywhere. Gee, that sounded rather Dr. Suess-ian didn’t it? ;-)
