This baby elephant can't quite figure out how to stand up

He's almost got it!

It's not just pandas having a hard time standing up these days. Baby elephants, it would appear, find it difficult to get all four feet on the ground as well. It's particularly a problem for this young pachyderm, which hails from Elephant Nature Park in Chang Mai, Thailand.

For the record, here are some other challenges facing elephants:


-Habitat loss

-Human-elephant conflict


The not being able to stand up thing really is a bummer, though.
