I like how the older elephant kept trying to block off the cameraman, like she was going to demand a sitting fee for the little one.

D'awwwww. Half way through, elephant smoochies!

(Or possibly a quick visit with the dental hygienist. I'm not completely familiar with elephant culture.)

So...has the person who title this "Elephant play hula hoop" never actually seen a hula hoop?

It gave off a distinct vibe of a stoned elephant.

first it was like .... "this blue thing is so cool. Check this out" and then suddenly "hey man, i love you man. you are the best person I have ever met .... uhhhh ... . this blue thing is so cool. I am in love with this blue thing."

What the fuck is he doing now - oh, a thing! I want the thing.

Oh man, you know I love you, but you can't have the thing. It's my thing. Imma gonna roll on it, see.

Fine, I don't want the thing anyway. See? I don't want it.

You sure? You sure you don't want it? LOOK AT THE THING!

Asshole.

TheLittlePrince and I have remarkably similar internal elephant dialog.

I love the way he seemed to love making circles with the streamer. "I'm good at this, I should choreograph a one-elephant show!" I couldn't stop smiling.

Cure elephant time? Our local zoo has a week old elephant calf and it's UNBEARABLY CUTE

And you can watch her with her mom on this cam (link probably only good for a few hours)

I interpreted it as the other elephant getting concerned that the one with the blue streamer was getting too excited, and came over to calm down or to comfort.

Our cat Signy used to do this whenever I sang. She'd come into the room screaming, almost like "I'm here! Why are you crying, big two-foot? Stop crying!"
