“Amazing creatures!!! Elephants take care of their young better than some humans take care of theirs,” a caption read. ” A second wrote, “We as humans have a lot to learn from these majestic creatures ❤️.”
Elephants are fiercely protective of their little ones. They pose a great danger to anyone who may harm them.
A video of a crocodile being killed underneath the feet of an angry mother elephant after it stalked her calf in the shallows of a river in Zambia.
THE VIDEO IS GRAPHIC AND NOT SUITABLE FOR MINORS
The video shows the mother elephant using her trunk and head to push the reptile and soon the mama elephant gets aggressive as she tramples the reptile under her weight.
Since the elephant did not had tusks, she used her mouth for most of the attack. The elephant wrapped her trunk around the crocodile’s tail and tossed it around while trampling it.
The continuous crushing by the elephant resulted in the crocodile’s death.
