Baby elephant in South Africa dances, chases birds & makes us go wheeee!

This is pure bliss.

For the adorable newborn elephant, and for us, jaded, disheartened animal lovers around the world. Watch as this calf tries to chase some low flying swallows in Kruger National Park in South Africa.


“With this week being so sad after the loss of a great animal, Cecil the lion, we thought we would cheer everyone up with a video that will make you cry of happiness, rather than sadness,” Kruger Sightings noted on YouTube.


More than 2 million people have revelled in the 1 minute 10 second video.
