The clip begins with the baby elephant struggling to get over the fence. Because elephants are naturally large, they cannot jump, making it difficult for the baby animal to get past the fencing. When it’s over, though, it seems to head straight for the mattress the zoo keeper is lying on.
The elephant tries to get the ‘sleeping’ man off right away, while the caretaker jokingly tries to share the mattress with the animal before being forced to get up. However, the keeper does not give up and lies down on the mattress again, with the elephant ending up face first in a pile of leaves in the corner.
Finally, the man decides to share the mattress with the elephant and he can be cuddled next to it, hugging and hugging it from one side.
Many internet users raved about the display of human-animal friendship, with one user commenting, “This is the sweetest thing ever”. Another internet user had a funnier take on the incident and addressed the zoo keeper by saying, “Luckily she wasn’t on him”.
