Keep It Cool, Guys

Sunday is the official first day of summer, but the heck with that. It’s been super toasty for weeks and weeks now! And these guys know just how to cool off!

Yes, This Is What An “Elfie” Looks Like

Yesterday, Vin The Pony snapped his own selfie…and today comes word that this Heffalump did the same thing, grabbing this fellow’s GoPro! Quoting the Yahoo! News Canada story, “I was taking photos and feeding the elephant bananas until I ran out of bananas and the elephant grabbed my GoPro while the camera was set to ‘timelapse,’” Christian LeBlanc wrote to Global News in an email. “This allowed the camera continuous shooting and enabled it to take the ‘elphie’!”

Navann’s Playtime In The Bathtub

Whoops. Make that….playtime WITH the bathtub.

OMG Twin Prosh Pachyderms

YES Way! (Remember saying that way back when?) Two extremely rare elephant twins were seen on the Pongola Game Reserve, located in Northern Kwa-Zulu Natal. (South Africa, yo.)

Um, I think we get a bonus Gila Monster the end of that clip?

They haven’t determined the sex of the twins yet.

Less than 1% of heffalump births are twins!

Mail Online has more info. And remember: RoC #07: “A thing, accompanied by a smaller version of that thing, is always cute.”

“Dear Cute Overload, Thanks for running more photos of hummingbirds these last few weeks! And, on the opposite end of the size spectrum, here is something I saw on the Guardian, called “Highlight of the Day.” This Heffalump having the highlight of his/her day is the highlight of my day. Love, Anna S.”

A Conversation Between Two Heffalumps

Faa Mai: “Dok Mai, would you like to roll around in the mud?”

Dok Mai: “Sure.”

Hula Hoopin’ Heffalumps

The video says Faa Mei The Heffalump is playing with a Hula Hoop, which I remember as a toy plastic hoop…which this isn’t. (Well, maybe it USED to be before they got to it.) And a bonus- wait for the sweet surprise at the 1:11 mark. These two live at Elephant Nature Park, an elephant rescue and rehabilitation center in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
