LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Meet your next FIFA World Cup most valuable player!

Sophie is an extremely playful elephant who lives in the Little Rock Zoo, and it's not uncommon to see her out in the yards playing with her favorite toys.

Sophie usually spends her time with Babe, one of the other elephants in the video, who often joins her in her silliness.

Along with the playful, silliness side, Sophie is also very smart.

Ellie Wheeler, the zoo’s elephant keeper, said this playful soccer video could be used as an example of Sophie's intelligence.

Standing in the skirts of the jungle, the whimsical turquoise cascades of Laos’ most noted waterfall, Tad Sae, rolling down the mountain beside me, I feel like I could be in a Bounty advert. The soundtrack is that of insects chattering urgently. Sadly, the sight of four elephants pacing about on short chains, with howdahs (chairs) strapped to their backs, puts a dampener on things.

Using ropes the rescue team were able to guide the pachyderm back to shore, the Navy said.

"A group of officials from the Department of Wildlife also joined this humongous task providing necessary instruction which became extremely vital in the rescue mission," they said in a statement. 

"Accordingly, they were able to carefully direct the elephant towards the coast from the deep sea, by means of ropes.

"Having safely guided the elephant to the Yan Oya area in Pulmodai, the animal was handed over to the wildlife officials for onward action."

Minneria National park is a beautiful area situated in the north central province in the island of Sri Lanka. It was declared as a wildlife sanctuary in 1938 to protect the human-made tank and the surrounding area full of wildlife. The Sinhalese people under the rule of King Mahasen built the reservoir here in the third century AD.

The location is always full of tourists both from the country and around the world due to its beautiful natural sceneries and these lovely giants that roam the island.
