泰国小象卖萌 见人就给“爱的抱抱”

A baby elephant has become a star attraction at a farm in Thailand where he falls into the arms of tourists and demands to be cuddled.
泰国某农场的一只小象已然成为了明星,引得游客慕名前来。这只小象喜欢往人臂弯里钻,特别黏人。

The endearingly playful infant named Nampuu - which means 'fountain' in Thai - lives at the Patara Elephant Farm in the northern city of Chiang Mai.
这只讨人喜欢的贪玩小象名叫“南浦”,泰语里意为“喷泉”,生活在泰国北部城市清迈的帕塔拉大象农场。

Images of the encounters between Nampuu and unwitting tourists show visitors screaming in delight as the cheeky calf climbs on top of them, falls between their arms and wraps his trunk around their heads.
从图片中可以看到,毫无防备的游客们被这只大方索抱的小象惊呆了,大家都高兴地尖叫着。小象直接攀到游客身上,钻进他们的臂弯里,用象鼻搂住他们的脑袋。

During the visit to the farm, tourists can take part in an 'Elephant Owner for the Day' package tour. The tour allows them to learn all about what is involved in rearing and caring for elephants.
去这个农场的游客可以参加一个团体项目——“大象主人一日游”,进而得以学习各种饲养、照顾大象的技能。

During the tour, the trainers explain to visitors the communication and the temperament of the elephants.
期间,培训师会向游客们介绍大象的脾性,以及跟大象交流的技巧。

According to the farm's Facebook page, baby Nampuu is always supervised by his mother Ploy, just in case he becomes too unruly during playtime with tourists.
根据该农场脸书主页的介绍,小象南浦的妈妈“普洛伊”一直对他管束很严,防止他在跟游客互动时不知轻重。
