good old tuck and roll. much more efficient than mom.
*trunk and roll
Close enough 🥰
Honestly it might be more impressive. Didn't stick the landing but points on attempting the half-calf trunk flip!
Children are all the same. Goofy.
Such poise. Such grace. They'll be teaching future generations the newer, /better/ way.
He takes a tumble
On to his face.
Needs to be in r/Elephants too
Only way i know that sub cause one my kids are obsessed with them. Half our house is elephant stuff
Lol as a former child myself I would totally roll down the hill.
Everyone’s either a child or a former child, ain’t no two ways about it.
So adorable! So innocent!
10/10 on the landing!
...Do elephants jump? Can they jump? Never really thought about it before.
Elephants cannot jump.
*task failed successfully*
I feel like his way was faster and more fun
Baby Elephant: *do a flip*
Jesus Christ that’s Jason Borne.
This is what they call "falling with style"!
But... There's a gentle slope just a bit further... 😂❤️
😆 my favorite animals.
Kids are stupid in all species
Whaddaya mean "almost?"

He will never forget that
oh i love it! so precious and i’ve never seen elephants bend their hind legs like that before.
I have to use this method to go down banks from now on. I'll probably end up like the baby but hey he's fine..
Happy Cake Day!
For an animal that weighs as much as elephants do, that was a pretty graceful and controlled fall. More efficient too honestly
Honestly that was much quicker
2.4 Degree of Difficulty
5.0 5.5 6.0 6.0 5.5
for missing the landing
Well, his way was quicker!
It's gotta be rough being an elephant. You're as big as a truck, you have a heavy head with big tusks, and a floppy hose dangling from your face all the time.
I'm with you except the whole thing where their noses aren't really floppy unless they relax them cause it's literally their only grabbing arm.
My old boss used to say "If it's stupid but it works then it ain't stupid"
Elephants know what cameras are, was he just goofing for it?
Not all elephants know what cameras are. Probably mostly elephants in zoos/captivity who learn what they are. They have the capability to learn what a camera is though, which is impressive.
Omg this is so cute
Somewhere nearby the Hank Hill elephant tells his alley buddies that "that boy ain't right."
More than one way to skin a cat
Title should have ended “and he made it...almost”
THEY DID IT!!
His way looks more fun!
Hahahaha elephants are rad!
I watched this way too many times... hilarious!
Oh, the high-efficiency solutions of the young ...
A win is still a win!
Pulled it off perfect
Do elephants laugh?
If it works...
It needs to be in r/wholesome.
earth must be preserved
That's exactly how the new recruit accomplished the task after I thought him. I am proud of him. The new blood always brings new ideas.
Wow. How graceful
That was ligitness
That's a win in my books
Only on r/aww would you see 100% upvoted XD
Just when I thought they couldn’t get any cuter
You will get em next time champ!
Too cute <3
He made it... almost 😁🥰
Love how its head stays in place as the torso swings around
Today I saw an elephant attempt a cartwheel
Hey, all that matter is he did it
Definite 9.9 for style.
Hahahah, that os cite
Bonus points for the flip Xd
Good job big buddy
Tactical elephant doing tactical roll
You know what, he got there in the end and seems fine
It all worked out
I luff them!
Creed doing a cartwheel vibes
First try flawless
OMG how cuutee
🤣🤣🤣🤣 to cute
Love it... such grace no dignity needed
This was so cute lol
I was not expecting that tumble at all and thought he would slide down... made me chuckle out loud
They’re basically giant puppies.
This is how I get out of bed
My joints hurt just watching this. I’m 22
Elephants will forever hold dearest to my heart. I will never forget being at the San Diego Zoo, 1989ish. I was 3 or almost 4, and my brother was 5 or 6. We each had one ticket left and could choose to ride the train or ride the elephant. Damn straight I chose to ride the elephant. But, as soon as my ride stopped, I noticed my brother was still enjoying his train ride. I got jealous that his ride lasted longer than mine. I threw a fit.(Sometimes my anxiety keeps me up at night and these memories come back to me; I always tell my mom I love her the very next morning).
Anyways, 30 years later and I’m now 34 watching videos of these majestic creatures wishing to be up close to one, and then my memory comes back- you chose to ride one at 4 years old- that’s badass.
Also. How can something so big be so smol at the same time??
Elephants are way too wholesome.
It was far better than I imagined!
Dismount 7/10 landing 9/10, hilarious 10/10.
Looks like he nailed it to me
I like your way but mine is better....
The baby suckles on their trunk after the fall... Aaawwww
Get him a part in the next Jackie Chan movie!
That's the cutest large flop I've ever seen 🤣
Wait hol'up.... I thought females were tuskless?
Nailed it! UwU
Looks like a human in an elephant costume
Same baby elephant
He totally nailed it.
They’re actually extremely intelligent. Sweet lil baby
Even baby elephants are tiny drunk adult elephants.
Plot twist, the baby was showing mom how to do it in style.
If it works, it ain't stupid
> baby elephant
This IS cute and all, and I don't want to be a downer, but that 'baby' is more technically classed as a juvenile seeing his size and tusks.
Edit: also hard to tell for sure, but it seems to have a bit of a lame front left leg.
He’s doing his best.
2 / 5
Mom: “that’s how you do it”
Baby: “why can’t we cross over there without the hill”
Mom: “you shush”
How I get out of bed
Almost? He absolutely nailed it.
Well, A for effort right?
I want to be a elephant :/ ( in a big elephant group so nothing can eat us)
I can hear the conversation:
Mum: ‘Ok sweetie, so front feet down first and then jus..’
Kid: ‘I knowa!’ Falls on face
I have this chat several times with my own kids. Can totally relate.
That was pretty funny... Needed a laugh
This is my favourite video of the year hands. probably wont be beaten.
Thanks for the morning laugh. Very cute. "I'll just roll, thanks"
Fuck you mean "almost"?
Calves will live with their mother for ~16 years.
Hey, if it works it works.
That woulda been my landing.
Almost? Dude did it with style way better than mom
Nah, mom. I got this!
mw trying to learn life lessons from my parents
Oh well, almost
Almost? He did that shit with style
I’m wondering why they didn’t have just walk around that crag.
It's not stupid if it works.
Are elephants not really fragile like horses? If a horse dis this, it would break its leg and be put down because it couldn't heal. Is it just that they're so much bigger and have stronger bones and muscles?
that's so cute but where is rhe river? :(
I don't know why this was difficult for them. We all know they can jump out of trees because that's where pygmys come from.
Things that make you go AWW! Like puppies, bunnies, babies, and so on...
A place for really cute pictures and videos!
