Baby Elephant's Water Polo Training Video Is Just. Too. Cute.

In celebration of his 5th birthday, Beco the elephant showed off his impressive water polo skills at the Columbus Zoo on March 26. The adorable Asian elephant tirelessly stomps through a miniature watering hole and pursues a shiny red ball to no avail in a video from the zoo featured above.

It's a hilarious merry-go-round of fury and frustration. Eventually, though, the adorable elephant resigns from the strenuous water polo game and plops down on his hiney.
