What good is it to be one of the strongest animals in the world if you don’t prove it from time to time?
Ask this mighty elephant, who decided to show off his strength with a pretty epic flex.
Footage has emerged showing the moment a wild elephant chose to confront an equally majestic object – a large, dead tree towering along the side of the road.
And when all was said and done, only one of them would be left standing.
For reasons not entirely clear, the elephant took its time to topple the tree – summoning his incredible strength to grip it like a branch.
This isn’t the first time an elephant has decided to knock down a tree; According to 4Elephants.org, it’s often to dine on foliage that would otherwise be out of reach.
But whatever the case may be in the scene above, one thing is clear – those gentle giants can certainly make a strong impression.
