Once in a while it's fun to just be silly and that's exactly what this baby elephant is realizing as she uses her trunk for an entirely new purpose.
At the Reid Park Zoo in Tucson, Arizona, a 2-week-old elephant calf is just getting the hang of that long nose of hers.
And she's figured out that she can use it to have a little fun rather than for what it was actually designed for. Instead of sucking up the water, like she's supposed to do with it, she's decided to do something that you might have seen other youngsters doing with their drinks (and a straw) at dinner time.
Mama elephant is standing there with her doing her best to ignore the mischievous baby, but it doesn't matter because she's determined to have her moment of fun.
Take a look at the adorable video below and enjoy watching this naughty baby as she delights in her newest trick! Soon enough, she'll be a big girl and she'll only be using that trunk for more practical purposes, but for now...
I don't think that there's a more adorable animal out there than a baby elephant! And this one is just about as cute as they come!
