Sam's New Pool Toy

The staff at the Oregon Zoo is committed to giving their animals exercise and fun with enrichment activities. Samudra is a 15-year-old Asian elephant at the Oregon Zoo. Sam just got a new toy to play with in the pachyderm pool- a water buoy! It's perfect for him, just the right size, easy to grab with his trunk or tusks, and always returns to the water's surface. The elephant seems to be trying to get the buoy to stay underwater, but it invariably pops back up! Maybe we could call the game "keepy-downy." Samudra looks like he's just a youngster when he's having so much fun!

He's trying to kill the thing.
