Fooling around: The elephants were drinking water on the banks of the Ghwarrie Dam in Addo Elephant National Park, Eastern Cape, South Africa, as their mother cooled off. And they quickly decided to have some fun

But just like their human counterparts, the youngsters’ love of play soon turned into a right old rough and tumble – much to the annoyance of the herd’s matriarch.

After a period of them piling on top of one another, she swiftly marched over to break up the fun before the poor baby elephant at the bottom was injured.

The moment was spotted by Ayesha Cantor, 46, during a day trip. She said: ‘We had been sitting at the dam for over an hour, watching the various family groups coming in to drink and play and then moving off.

‘We had just decided to move off when I just happened to glance back for a last look and quickly called out for my husband to stop again when I saw the two youngsters seemingly deep in conversation – one more pic turned into the elephant bundle.

Fun: The elephants started by bumping into each other before deciding to pile on top of each other

Messy: Covered in mud, the baby elephants quickly decided to jump all over each other

‘I’ve heard and seen two babies briefly playing but never four and over such a long period of time as this.

‘Just like children, they test their boundaries. Play teaches them to know their boundaries and how to behave within their family group.

‘It looked to us exactly how humans play, so playful and so fun. Amazing to see wild animals enjoying themselves in this way.’

And Mrs. Cantor admitted she wouldn’t have wanted to be the elephant at the bottom of the 900kg pile, adding:

‘Having been near the bottom of a human pile-on you can be sure I was very pleased not to be that baby Ellie at the bottom of this particular one.’

Hurt: The pressure was too much for the elephant on the bottom who was left injured after the fun

Pile on: The mother of the elephants quickly decided enough was enough and marched over to break up the fun
