Baby Elephant Throws Adorable Temper Tantrum

As most parents know, children enjoy getting their way. But when children fail to obtain their desire in timing that is to their liking, they tend to act out in loud, ear-piercing ways. It turns out that human children are not the only ones capable of throwing temper tantrums.

As one video shows, baby elephants also have ways of displaying their anger and disgust. The video begins by showing a herd of elephants as they cross a dirt-covered road. All seems fine until a baby elephant refuses to go along with the rest of its kind.

The video shows a baby elephant as it plops down on the side of the road. The elephant falls over onto its side and begins flailing wildly in the dirt road. Additionally, the animal shakes its ears around, which is a sure sign that the massive creature is not happy for whatever reason, according to the video.

The baby elephant, much like children during a similar angry outburst, wants attention. The baby elephant’s attempt at garnering attention is not successful. 

The video mentions two adult elephants pass by the smaller elephant and pay it no mind. Instead, they continue on with their journey. 

After realizing its attempt to get itself what it so desired – attention - the baby elephant promptly gets back up and rushes to join its group. Members of its herd had crossed the road without giving in to the little elephant’s angry plea for recognition. 

It remains unclear what exactly the elephant wanted, other than attention, with its cute and angry flailing. The baby elephant indeed lost that round. But as most parents know, whether humans or elephants, there will almost assuredly be another outburst and cry for attention in the future. 

Proverbs 22:15 “Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.”
