The playful elephant continues tapping on Dan Daeng’s body although he clearly tries to ignore him in order to finish his painting.

Seeing his trainer does not respond to his tap, Khunsuk later climbs the fence and rest his front feet on the fence before using his trunk to ruffle Dan Daeng’s hair.

“I didn’t notice him behind me until he touched my leg with his trunk. He just wanted to play but I was busy painting,” he said.

“Khunsuk has more energy than any elephant I have seen. He’s very cute.”

How can one say no to this adorable baby elephant. He is just too cute!
