Sometimes there is no other joy like being an elephant and with Faa Mai, the “first born free” elephant at Elephant Nature Park who came into this world on 17 April 2009, there is no holding back. She finds happiness in so much around her, in fact, that she has come to be called “the most happy elephant”.
Like most elephants she enjoys a good day out in the mud hole. Whether with her pachyderm or human companions Faa Mai is always keen on a good slathering of mud. (See her enjoy a “Mud Bath” with Lek, founder of Elephant Nature Park and special consort to Faa Mai)
But most of all what makes her the happiest of all is being with her mama and her own elephant family on the grounds of the sanctuary.
