Swimming elephants: Lily and Rose-Tu go for a dip to stay cool
Lily slashes around at the Oregon Zoo while playing with her mother on Tuesday morning.

PORTLAND, Ore. – Portlanders love to break out the kiddie pools or flock to Salmon Street Springs to stay cool in this warm weather. Over at the Oregon Zoo, Lily the elephant had the same idea on Tuesday morning.

The 5-month-old Asian elephant hopped in the water with her mom Rose-Tu and splashed around a bit. Lucky for all of us, a videographer from the zoo was there to capture it all and share with the world.

So here it is, your latest Lily fix. Enjoy.
