This jumbo never learns his lessons, and how
A video of a baby elephant christened as T-Noi, who seems to be frolicking with dogs has gone viral on social media. The video shared on a Facebook page called ‘Go Animals’ has netizens fawning over the antics of the unlikely playmates. The clip begins with two dogs chasing and teasing the nine-month-old elephant who is a little overwhelmed by all this attention. Stepping out of his enclosure, the jumbo decides to give a chase to the canines. Unfortunately, being a little left-footed, he slips in the mud, landing flat on his face. Viewers have interpreted his expression as everything from embarrassment to just plain sheepishness. We hope these munchkins have more such fun times ahead.

But, as it turns out, the water body is basically a melting sheet of ice and the dogs look like they are walking in ankle deep water. The speed at which the ice above it had melted, forced the water to accumulate over the ice sheet itself. Olsen goes on to warn explorers that voyages undertaken to these expanses should be done so with utmost caution. As for the fallout of climate change, we better get our act together.
