Baby elephants sure know how to enjoy life, especially this newborn named Navann.

The adorable video was shot at the Elephant Nature Park in northern Thailand and uploaded to YouTube in February. Navaan, who was born last October, can be seen jaunting around and frolicking in the mud like he's never had more fun.

Although there are a few elephant sanctuaries throughout Thailand, the country remains a hub for the illegal ivory trade. There are no laws prohibiting the trade of domestic ivory in the country, and conservation groups have urged Thai officials to institute an all-encompassing ivory trade ban.
