Now That’s a Jumbo Hug: Baby Elephant Loves Hugging with People in Thailand

(People's Daily Online)    02:56, April 08, 2016

A baby elephant has become a star attraction at the Patara Elephant Farm in Chiang Mai, Thailand. The playful infant whose name is Nampuu, meaning “fountain” in Thai, loves cuddles so much that he always falls into the arms of overjoyed tourists.

Images of the encounters between Nampuu and unwitting tourists show visitors screaming in delight as the cheeky calf climbs on top of them, falls between their arms and wraps his trunk around their heads.

Nampuu only weighed 148lbs when he was born, well under the 220lbs of most newborns. And he is supervised by his mother Ploy and the farm who keeps an eye on him while playing with the tourists.
