Baby Elephant Stops In The Middle Of The Road To Play With Some Birds

The Kruger National Park in South Africa is always full of some of nature’s best sights and sounds. But what was caught on video below may be the most precious thing yet! As they record a baby elephant trying to cross the road, they notice that something stops him in his tracks.

You can hear one woman saying she thinks the elephant calf stepped on his trunk, but she soon realizes he’s actually chasing some birds around. The baby notices the low-flying swallows and stops in the middle of the road to play with his newfound feathered friends! The way he prances across the pavement following them around is just too adorable. 🙂
