Herd Of Elephants Won't Soon Forget Playing With A Big Red Ball (VIDEO)

When an elephant herd at the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai province of northern Thailand were given a big red ball, things got crazy.

Watch the elephants run and play with the enrichment toy ball as they knock it around in glee.

The Elephant Nature Park is an elephant rescue center that provides a sanctuary for dozens of distressed elephants and endangered animals from all over Thailand. People at the park not only invite volunteers to help rehabilitate and learn about the animals, but also work toward rain forest restoration, cultural preservation and visitor education.

"The park provides a natural environment for elephants, dogs, cats, buffaloes and many other animals under our care," states the park's website. "Volunteers and visitors contribute to the healing while learning about their lives past and present."

We're sure these lucky elephants will never forget what a great time they had this day.
