Q: I've noticed that five of my uploads have " Hot" in front of the caption. Why are they caterogized that way ?

This juvenile elephant is having a lot of fun getting a trunk full of dirt and hay to throw up in the air and have it land on its back. It also took rolls in the dirt and hay. It has a happy look on its
face : )

A big thank you to Don Garrett for the spotlight!

    I agree with Donald...great timing on this sweet elephant having fun .They are so smart and know how to entertain themselves. Besides the dirt and hay probably feels soothing on its back and it knows it will get a scrub down and washing from the zoo keepers afterwards:)
