Baby elephant fails as he tries to drink from his trunk and so warms hearts instead

Animal babies, like human toddlers, enter the world with a lot to learn.

They sometimes struggle to do things, which makes these scenes nothing short of adorable.

A baby elephant found himself in an impossible situation! It was a scorching day in South Africa’s Kruger National Park.

So when this family of elephants came across a pond, they all dashed to cool off, except for a tiny calf who struggled to use his tiny trunk.

Nobody apparently taught him how to drink from his trunk.

Safari tourist Graeme Mitchley captured the hilarious moment on camera!

While the rest of his family is simply pulling water up with their trunks and then pouring it into their mouths, this little fella is more perplexed than ever.

He simply waves his trunk across the surface of the water, but his mouth remains dry.

His bizarre technique, while amusing, does not appear to help him at all.

Unsatisfied, the adorable little thing tries again. He’s splashing water into his mouth this time, more like a dog would.

Again, his efforts are futile. So he goes and completely skips his tiny trunk into water.

Minutes later, the baby elephant appears to regain consciousness when he suddenly recalls how to use his trunk.
