Baby Elephant Throws Temper Tantrum In Middle Of Road But Then Mom Steps In

Temper tantrums are a normal part of life for parents with young children. Sometimes, kids are over-tired and can’t control their emotions. Other times, they don’t have the words yet to say what’s wrong and so they show their unhappiness with a tantrum.While kids’ temper tantrums are usually not-so-cute, when animals have them, they can be downright adorable.

In this delightful video, an adorable baby elephant has a temper tantrum as his herd crosses the road.As the video begins, Harry Belafonte’s Banana Boat Song begins playing in the background. The screen then opens to the baby elephant crossing towards the left-hand side of an African road.As the baby elephant reaches the side of the road, he dejectedly falls over into the long Saharan grass.

I wonder what has gotten the little guy so upset.Maybe mama said he wasn’t allowed to play with his animal buddies, or maybe he’s just tired from all the walking and needs a nap.As an adult elephant passes by, seemingly not paying much attention to the young one, the baby throws himself back into the road.After this throw, the little guy spends some time rolling around the path.

He kicks his little legs up in the air, glumly tossing his body weight in every direction. The baby’s kicking continues for approximately 30 seconds as he waits for another adult elephant to cross his path.

Throughout it all, we hear Belafonte singing, “Daylight come and I wanna go home.”

After the baby’s kicking episode, another adult elephant— who I assume is his mother— makes her way towards the herd crossing.
The mother passes the little one, completely unfazed by his behavior. The baby quickly untangles his limbs, running to catch up with her as the video comes to an end.
