The Fort Worth Zoo’s baby elephant is already making a splash with Texas children who visit the attraction – and online, where Belle has become a viral star.

Baby Elephant Plays in Pool

Bell was born July 7, and is the second Asian elephant to be born at the Fort Worth Zoo in 104 years. The staff has quickly been making up for lost time.

The kids’ (and adults’ if we’re being honest) fascination with the pachyderm only grew today when officials at the venue added a pool to her enclosure.

A small, inflatable pool that’s way too little for even Belle.

Cuteness ensued. Watch and swoon above.
