A baby elephant has been making a splash in the hot weather by playing in an inflatable paddling pool.
The ellie which is yet to be named was encouraged to cool down in a full paddling pool designed more for toddlers than excitable elephants.
Tracy Gray, the manager of media and public relations at Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium in America said: “She is just three weeks old and is doing very well.
She is learning to use her trunk and is getting stronger every day. Her favourite toy is her big red ball.”
