Video by @amivitale. A baby elephant takes a splash in the cooling mud at Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) in Northern Kenya. Elephants cover themselves in mud as a shield against the harsh sun and the rescued elephants being cared for at Reteti are instinctively teaching each other many of these useful skills.

Follow @r.e.s.c.u.e, nearby @sararacamp and @amivitale to learn more about these initiatives and help support their work!
