The caption to this video begins to read, “Latika always saves some for later. She stockpiles extra lucerne and greens in the most convenient place — atop her head!” There are more details about why this sweet little elephant does this in the caption that you can read right here:

This video was shot in Kenya. Since being shared on Instagram around nine hours ago, it has already received more than 52,500 likes and several comments from animal lovers on the app.

“I feel that this just made Latika more popular and she will gain a lot of foster parents,” commented an Instagram user. “Laughed a little too much, she's just so adorable,” commented another. “They are so funny and smart and sweet,” posted a third, followed by an elephant emoji. “She looks so chic with her lucerne hat! What a cutie,” posted another.
