An adorable video of a baby elephant stuck in the mud is going viral.

The footage, filmed by Wild Wings Safaris, shows a calf struggling to scale a muddy embankment.

After several failed attempts, the adult elephants nearby come to the baby’s aid, using their trunks to pull the calf out of its sticky situation.

Relieved, the baby elephant trots off with the herd. It’s a lovely illustration of the power of team work!

The footage was shot in Kruger National Park in South Africa, on November 19.
