Elephants simply enjoy dust baths and often make the most of them. In a video posted by Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, a baby elephant was seen taking a dust bath and social media users loved watching the short clip. The 30-second clip has been viewed over 6,000 times so far.
As seen in the clip, Kinyei the baby elephant made the most of every moment by taking a dust bath. He rolled around on the floor and from his expressions it’s pretty clear he had a lot of fun.
Dust baths are very beneficial for elephants as the muddy layer covers their skin and protects them from the harmful rays of the sun.
âDust baths are amazingly fun, just ask Kinyei! But they also have a practical function, coating orphans with a layer of soil that protects their skin from the sun. The herd dives daily, as part of their daily routine, âSheldrick Wildlife Trust said in the caption of his article.
