Baby Elephants Racing in Mud


Rushing to grab a quick drink can sometimes leave you stuck in the mud, as these baby elephants found out.

The troublesome trio were eager to be the first to the watering hole at the Madikwe Game Reserve in South Africa as they sought to cool off in the sweltering conditions.

However, in their haste they become stuck in some thick mud to make the journey just that little bit harder.

Kristoff Potgieter, 28, captured the whole thing on video early last month and gave the elephants names of Hughey, Dewey and Louis after the characters from animated TV series “Duck Tales”.
