Ready For Summer Heat

    • I remember visiting that elephant pool when it was being filled. They had a fire hydrant next to the edge and just open it up under full pressure. One of the elephants deliberately took a personal shower, outting his forehead and face directly in the stream. It’s fun to watch.
