VIDEO: Trunks Line Up Patiently at the Fresh Water Pipe

These three elephants at Karen Elephant Experience¬† (a feature of Elephant Nature Park rescue sanctuary in Thailand) love their fresh water — but still patiently wait their turn at the water pipe.

Watch the graceful trunks as, one by one, they delicately twist to catch the water as it flows from the spout.

Kind of mesmerizing, isn’t it?

      Elephants are the world’s most family friendly creatures. They even adopt orphans has a matriarch.

    I love how two of the elephants gang up on the one who is trying to hog the water.

    Beautiful to watch them interacting in a safe and peaceful environment. Too bad all elephants are that lucky.
