Bath Time for Baby Elephant

The Kolmarden Zoo’s 2-month-old elephant calf is a happy guy. Among his favorite things: getting sprayed down with the hose at bath time!

The endangered Asian elephant was born at the zoo in Sweden on July 27 and weighed 191 pounds.

His mom, Bua, was a gift to the King of Sweden from the King of Thailand.

Bua was inseminated in 2011 with semen from a bull who lives in the U.K.

The calf is the first male in the Kolmarden Zoo's resident herd.
