Play is not just important to human development, but to all animals upon the earth. In fact, we even make a point now of recording videos of various animals and pets at play. Puppies and kittens are obviously the most adorable, but it’s also fun to see birds, horses, goats, monkeys, and even dolphins playing without a care in the world.

But elephant play can be a little dangerous. After all, a baby elephant is still a heavy force to be reckoned with. Thankfully, the domesticated ones are fairly gentle and still very adorable. They play around with old rubber tires like it’s nothing, and are very inquisitive creatures. They can even enjoy playing with other animals!
