Elephant adorably tries a handstand in the water

- An elephant at the Oregon Zoo showed off for crowds (and the cameras) splashing around in the water inside her enclosure.

The Oregon Zoo posted video of nine-year-old Samudra, an Asian elephant, playing in the water, wading in, diving under it and even appearing to do a handstand while sitcking her hind legs out of the water as onlookers cheered.

Samudra even enjoyed a watermelon at the end of the video.
