Can't stand the heat in the summer and can't wait to have a dip in a pool? It's the same with the herd of 14 wild Asian elephants roaming Yunnan province.

Seen from the aerial video footages provided by the command office in charge of monitoring the herd's migration on Friday, they took turns to have dip in the muddy pond, which has been their regular activities since their arrival at Longwu, Shiping county.

As the pond is relatively small, a line was formed for the bath but the baby elephants were given priority and well cared by the female elephants that constantly sprayed water onto their bodies with their trunks. The herd took a nap after the bath, the footage showed.
