Bubbles the elephant and Bella the Labrador Retriever are best friends and have bonded over their love of water. The two unlikely besties love to swim and play in the river together at Myrtle Beach Safari. Bubbles loves to spend time with Bella and makes it a game for Bella to climb and jump off her back. I’ve never seen an animal friendship like this pair before!
Bubbles was adopted by Myrtle Beach Safari in 1983 as an ivory orphan (her parents were killed for their ivory by poachers). As for Bella, she was abandoned when she was a puppy in 2007 at the preserve.
