For elephants, time spent in a cool mud bath is precious. But sometimes, there's not enough mud to go around. For one baby elephant at the Elephant Nature Park, a sanctuary in Thailand, this predicament was very real.

She got a little time in the mud at first ...But soon enough, a bigger elephant took over.It's hard being small."When's my turn?"Better luck next time, buddy.

Many of the elephants at the sanctuary are there because they were rescued from miserable lives in trekking camps where they're used to give tourists rides. See this post for more information about the elephant tourism industry and how to avoid irresponsible elephant tourism.
