This adorable baby elephant left its carers in no doubt that it loved bath time as he gleefully splashed and rolled around in the water.

Timid at first, Fah Sai the elephant starts playfully kicking at the water at the Elephant Retirement Park in Phuket,

He rolls around the tub and causes floods of water to pour over the edges.

The sides bulge as he rolls on to his side and puts his head underwater while holding his breath.

 

Fah Sai the elephant starts playfully kicking at the water at the Elephant Retirement Park in Phuket, Thailand. He soon builds up more confidence and begins to lower himself further into the water

He finally comes up for air and flops his trunk over the edge of the tub while relaxing.

The Elephant Retirement Park, founded by Mr. Adulwit Khamya, is home to eight elephants of different ages.

They are looked after by a team of carers who are committed to giving them the best life possible.

Mancunian comedian, Joe Keogh, created a documentary called An Elephant Never Forgets which exposed the dark side of elephant treatment in the tourism industry in Thailand.

In Thailand three out of four elephants are living in unacceptable conditions and it is not uncommon for them to be abused when they are used for riding or street begging.

At the Elephant Retirement Park they claim to be proud of their strict policy in the treatment of its elephants.

Their website says: ‘There is absolutely no riding, chaining or beating of any kind.

‘The sole focus is to promote the well-being of retired elephants.

‘Visitors and volunteers to the park can expect an enjoyable and rewarding experience working with the local Mahout people to care for these majestic symbols of strength and peace.’
