Elephant Shower Massage

The video I posted yesterday of the Oregon Zoo’s elephants in their pool brought back memories of visiting them one morning when that pool was just starting to be filled. Elephants LOVE water! They are very intelligent and literally frolic and play in open water.

One of the larger females laid on her side right in the powerful stream of water coming from the hydrant used to fill the pool. She was giving herself a shower massage just as you and I would in the morning. Personally I only rarely have found a shower with enough water pressure to satisfy my need to peel away a layer of skin. The only time I’ve been in a situation with enough water pressure was on the road during an overnight stay at a motel. Their shower really had a lot of water pressure. It was like nirvana. ๐Ÿ™‚

That adult elephant I mentioned enjoyed her water massage as I photographed the experience. ๐Ÿ™‚
