A 3-week-old baby elephant playing in an inflatable pool is the Internet's newest obsession after a video from the Fort Worth Zoo surfaced last week.

The baby elephant, named Belle, is seen splashing around as she tries to cool off from the 100-degree Texas heat while her mother Rasha looks on.

Belle, who was 330 pounds at birth, is "curious and full of personality, learning new things every day, learning what her trunk is for, learning to use her legs," a zoo spokeswoman said in a statement accompanying the clip.
