This playful pachyderm just wanted a piggyback ride from its sibling. Was that too much to ask?

Apparently so!

This elephant calf in South Africa's Addo Elephant Park wanted nothing more than to amble up over its sibling, perhaps for a better view. A first attempt doesn't get far — the calf can't even get itself over its sibling. Undeterred (and perhaps immediately forgetting the first failed attempted; oh, the irony), the calf is almost successful... until it slips off into a defeated — but adorable — heap on the ground.

Better luck next time!
