Young elephant makes the most of a nearby water fountain as he dives straight in and rolls around.

Philimon, a two-year-old elephant, managed to put a smile on everyone’s face at the Moscow Zoo in Russia when he caused a splash in the water feature.

The wonderful moment was caught on camera by Natalya Nazarova who felt delighted by the elephant’s sheer glee.

Some of the older elephants were slightly more hesitant than Philimon, but after seeing the fun the young elephant was having, they joined him.

“His name is Philimon and he was a year old at the time of shooting,” said Natalya.

“I experienced pure joy along with him.”
