Playtime for the elephants

It’s been a long hot year and all the animals have been feeling the effects of it but recently it rained quite heavily and the animals are loving it – especially the elephants. The dams have filled up quite a bit and two elephants wasted no time in rushing into the water, and almost fully submerged, they wrestled with each other in the water, trumpeting all the while. You could almost hear them shouting with joy because of the fresh water. Even after their swim they stood on the bank splashing water over themselves, as well as each other.
