I Don’t Move! I’m not going, Adorable baby elephant throws a tantrum when his mother tries to chase him off the road in South Africa

Adorable images show a baby elephant throwing a tantrum like a stroppy child in South Africa as its mother looks unperturbed and continues walking along the road.

The troublesome tyke threw himself to the ground with his legs flailing in the air hoping to get his mother’s attention.

But a few moments later the female leaves her young behind and carries on moving.

Not moving: After grazing by the roadside, the young elephant was not in the mood for more walking as it toppled over into the road

The funny collection of images were snapped by 57-year-old security officer Antonio da Cruz.

On a trip to South Africa’s Kruger Park he came across a small herd of elephants blocking the road.

‘We waited but after a few minutes of roadside grazing the females and other elephants moved into the roadside bush,’ he explained.

‘This little guy had been standing in the middle of the road and was determined to stay put.’

Ouch: The little elephant fell over head first before plonking himself on the road in a defiant show of resistance to authority

Antonio said when the mother moved into the bush the needy elephant ‘toppled forward onto his head’ before plonking onto the road in a defiant show of resistance to authority.

‘After flaying his legs, head, and tail a few times he looked over at his mom and she then called his bluff by moving further away into the bush.

‘He quickly got up, gave us a stare, and then chased after her!’
