Awww, he looks happy. :biggrin:

This huge elephant swimming pool is allowing Japanese zookeepers better understand how pachyderms move in water.
An Asian elephant swims a 65-meters long pool at Fuji Safari Park in Susono at the foot of Mt. Fuji, southwest of Tokyo, Monday, July 13, 2015. The park was inspired by the images of elephants swimming in the ocean and wanted to build a facility exactly demonstrating what was little known in Japan that elephants can actually swim. The attraction opened on July 11
The 65 metre pool has been built to replicate the scale of a river elephants would encounter in the wild.
