Elephants playing in the water

Play like Elephants do!

What do you feel about zoos? I have mixed feelings when one mention the zoo word. A zoo can be a prison or a safe home to an endangered, injured wild animal. I have been visiting Borås Zoo  since I started my studies at the University of Borås. The zoo is located on the outskirts of the city enclosed by the forest area and occupying 40 ha of the land. I am not an animal expert but I felt that this zoo provides a spacious habitat for all animals, so I continue to come there. Once, I heard that the zoo received a new arrival – a baby elephant. It was a perfect time to revisit.

I couldn’t believe how lucky I got: two adult elephants and the baby elephant played, ducked, pulled each other trunks and sprayed with water a front of me for hours. They truly knew how to have fun and be in the moment!

Check the video below, you cannot help but feel uplifted!

    Fastnade för detta inlägget. Älskar djur. Jobbade ett par månader i Borås djurpark när jag tagit studenten.
    Och väldigt trevligt att träffa dig på balansekonomi!

      Djur är underbara! Läser nu nämligen en bok om djur som heter Beyond Words: What Animals Think and Feel
      av Carl Safina. Riktig intressant!
