Baby elephant frolics in paddling pool

Many of us have been trying to find ways of keeping cool in the recent high temperatures and a baby elephant in Texas seems to have found a solution.

Belle, a three-week-old Asian elephant born at Fort Worth Zoo has been splashing around in an inflatable paddling pool inside her enclosure.

She cooled off by rolling around in the water under the watchful eye of her mother.

Asian elephants have been listed as endangered since 1976 and Belle is just the second to be born at the zoo in its 104-year history.
