    WATCH: Delighted Elephants Play Together in the Rain

    As light rain falls on Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai, Thailand, on July 8, 2014, herds of elephants are in pure bliss - dancing and splashing together around the park.

    Founded in 1995 by the Save Elephant Foundation, today, the reserve is home to more than 35 elephants, saved from the tourist and illegal logging industry, according to the foundation's website.

    Captured on camera by elephantnews, the park's elephants can be seen whirling around in the mud and in puddles together as raindrops fall on the lush, mountainous terrain.
