Fact: Baby elephants love mud. Also fact: Baby elephants are about as coordinated as, well, most babies.
The combination makes for some adorably cute moments, like in this new video of a petite pachyderm at the Kruger National Park in South Africa struggling to get out of the mud hole he's flailing around in.
Fortunately, elephants never forget about their own bumbling calf-hoods, and the grown-ups quickly show up on the scene to lend a hand (er, trunk) in assistance.
Meanwhile, we get to enjoy the whole spectacle. (And stick around: Once he's back on dry land he's still not entirely sure about this walking thing!)
