Elephant Covered in Sand at Zoo in England
Oops! Scott seems to have made a mess
We've all been there.

Your mom's nagging you to hop into the tub and clean up, but what do you really want to do? Make a mess – and that's exactly what this 18-month-old elephant did.

A resident of the ZSL Whipsnade Zoo in England, Asian elephant Scott promptly returned to his enclosure's sand pit after being hosed down. The mischievous pachyderm rolled around in the pit, covering his entire body in sand, before taking it one step further and splattering sand all over himself with his trunk.

Though we're sure his keepers were none too pleased, we have to admit: how could something that makes someone look so happy be wrong?
