It’s A Swimming Elephant!

Elephants are wonderful animals, but unfortunately, the elephant population in the wild is decreasing due to loss of habitat and illegal hunting for their tusks.

Looking at the physical appearance of an elephant, many might not even think that they are actually good swimmers!

Recently, the Department of Wildlife and National Parks (PERHILITAN) shared a video on Twitter showing a male elephant swimming across the river at Tanjung Mentong, Taman Negara Terengganu. 

The two-minute video has been viewed by over 145.3 thousand people and has 7.1 thousand retweets and 8.2 thousand likes.

The video received a lot of attention, especially from animal lovers.

Others were more interested to know how PERHILITAN ensures the safety of the elephant while they escort it back to dry land… 

We can’t help it either, he is the cutest!
