Mischievous Calf 'Celebrates' World Elephant Day With His Mom at Taronga Zoo

A mischievous elephant calf kept his mother on her toes on August 12 as the pair “celebrated” World Elephant Day at Taronga Zoo Sydney.

Footage taken by keeper Alexia Dalley shows two of the zoo’s resident elephants, Pak Boon and her two-year-old calf, Jai Dee, having some fun in the mud at their enclosure.

According to the zoo, Jai Dee — who is an Asian elephant — has entered his “terrible twos” and is proving quite a trunk-ful for his mother. Credit: Alexia Dalley (Elephant Keeper TZ) via Storyful
