SAN DIEGO — A little wet weather made for a muddy slip-n-slide for elephants at the San Diego Zoo.

The playful pachyderms were splishing and splashing, rolling over and taking mud baths.

According to its website, the San Diego Zoo Safari Park is home to nine African bush elephants -- three adults and six calves -- of various ages.
