The Melbourne Zoo welcomed its first baby elephant ever to be born in its 148-year-history, and only the second to be born at an Australian zoo, Reuters reported.

The elephant, who was born by artificial insemination last month, has been "rambunctious" from her first breath, The Daily Telegraph reported.

Her playfulness is evident in this footage of her adorably flopping around in the water, taking a bath.
