Sunday Smile: Mara’s Squishy Mud Face

Everyone has their favorite ways to celebrate relaxing rainy days. Some humans might be tempted to nap or curl up with a good book. Not so at Elephant Sanctuary Brazil. Here, rainy days are for diving into mud, sometimes face first. Here, Mara is taking advantage of all of the sloppy goodness, squishing her face right into the mud. What better way to show your enthusiasm than to dive headlong into joy. We hope this Sunday Smile keeps you cheerful, no matter what the weather is like for you.
