I Don’t Move! I Don’t Move! Baby elephant’s cutest tantrum ever caught on camera

If you’ve ever been a parent, then you’ll know there’s a skill that all kids excel in … rage.

When a child can’t find their way, you will inevitably see them screaming, crying, and throwing themselves to the floor.

While we all know that tantrums are an inevitable aspect of human parenting, it turns out that the same can be said for other species.

In the video, you can see how the mother reacts when her baby has a tantrum in the middle of the road.

She quickly takes action and handles the situation. Just what mom does is the best!

Your baby does everything from rocking to clapping his ears and even falling to show discomfort.

The little guy was completely ignored by all the adults that passed in the herd.

Antonio da Cruz, who witnessed the scene, explained: “We waited a few minutes after grazing the roadside, and the female elephants and the other elephants had moved into the roadside lawn.”

“This little guy stood in the middle of the road and was determined to stay.”

“After swaying his legs, head, and tail a few times, he looked over at his mother, and then his mom called his bluff by moving further into the bushes. He quickly stood up, took a look at us, and chased after her.

Adorable images show a baby elephant throwing a tantrum like a stroppy child in South Africa as its mother looks unperturbed and continues walking along the road.

On a trip to South Africa’s Kruger Park he came across a small herd of elephants blocking the road.

‘We waited but after a few minutes of roadside grazing the females and other elephants moved into the roadside bush,’ he explained.

‘This little guy had been standing in the middle of the road and was determined to stay put.’

Antonio said when the mother moved into the bush the needy elephant ‘toppled forward onto his head’ before plonking onto the road in a defiant show of resistance to authority.

‘After flaying his legs, head, and tail a few times he looked over at his mom and she then called his bluff by moving further away into the bush.

‘He quickly got up, gave us a stare, and then chased after her!’
