The antics happened at Kalawewa National Park in Sri Lanka and were photographed by wildlife snapper Pathum Bandara[/caption]
Wildlife snapper Pathum Bandara, 34, who took the pics in Kalawewa National Park, said: “Baby elephants are very playful, and whilst I was observing a herd of over 200 elephants I spotted these two messing around.
‘’The little baby elephant looked like he was trying to steal a free ride as he rested on another!”
“He looks so mischievous as he is looked in my direction, and to get a shot that is so clean as this looking straight at them which is why I’m honoured to have taken the picture”
