Another video showing a baby elephant demanding his keeper's attention and refusing to take a 'no' for an answer went viral. In the video, one could see the baby elephant reaching through his enclosure and tapping his keeper on the leg with his trunk. Further, in the video, the keeper was also seen ignoring the animal but the playful elephant continued prodding him till he responded.
According to reports, the video was shot at the Mae-Sa Elephant Camp in Chiang Mai, Thailand. The one-year-old elephant is named Khunsuk and his keeper, Dan Daeng takes care of him. In the video, the 20-year-old Daeng was also seen standing up and grinning in exasperation while Khunsuk climbs onto the fence and affectionately pulls him closer using his trunk.
In this adorable video, a young #elephant affectionately reaches out to the fence painter who plays with the animal. The elephant's playfulness is a treat for the eyes! A great instance of human-animal coexistence. @WWFINDIA @moefcc @PrakashJavdekar @wti_org_india @natgeowild pic.twitter.com/uUaEFTdz8C— Parimal Nathwani (@mpparimal) January 26, 2020
