All five of the elephants here enjoy a daily allotment of fresh produce. Some have their favorites and others have definite dislikes. But, nobody is going to turn down a fresh watermelon.
In this video, Maia decides to dig right in – or rather, step right in. Her watermelon squashing technique is as delicate as possible, as to make very little mess. When she is taking her first bite, you can really hear those elephant molars making short work of the melon rind. Other bites are more delicate. But regardless, she is definitely savoring every mouthful.
