Lady Enjoys a Cool Bath On a Warm Day

It’s no secret that Lady loves mud and water. She likes to squish her feet in the soft mud and splash herself to keep cool. As Lady headed out to one of her favorite spots in Yard 5 recently, Kat was watching to see if she would stop to bathe or just keep cruising out into the wilds of the outer yards. It was a fairly warm day so, sure enough, Lady decided a bath would feel nice.Β 

Normally, Lady adjusts her behavior when someone starts taking video, but on this afternoon she seemed to be feeling particularly spry and went about her business while Kat filmed her a bit. You can see her here, light-heartedly splashing and spraying herself with water – just hanging out and feeling cheerful.

    This made me think of something. Any idea how much water a typical elephant’s trunk can hold?

      Their trunks can hold about 2 gallons (8 liters) of water.

      It can mean many things, depending on the situation. In this case, it’s a sign of contentment.
