Baby elephants romping around in the pool? Sign me up! These two little guys, Baylor and Tupelo, have their very own pool at the Houston Zoo. The pool only lasts about five uses before it has to be replaced. This might have something to do with the fact that Baylor weighs about 1100 pounds and Tupelo weighs a little more than 600 pounds.
