The Smoking Elephant!

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
We are excited to share with you a rare video shot by Mr Vinay Kumar, Assistant Director at WCS India, which captures a wild Asian Elephant exhibiting incredibly unusual behaviour – seemingly ingesting charcoal and blowing out the ashes! The video was taken while he, his colleague Mr Srikanth Rao and our field staff were checking in on our installed camera-traps in the park as a part of WCS India’s long term monitoring of tiger and prey populations in Nagarahole National Park, Karnataka.

That elephant has always wanted to be a dragon deep deep down in his elephant heart he hopes one day to fly above the clouds with elephant wings like a big fat grey four legged dragon whilst breathing smoke and fire dumbo could fly but this one has even higher hopes it would seem. He wishes to rule the sky and burn his enemies with his fire breath! I imagine that would be a bad day for any indian poachers or foresters looking to hack and/or burn down the jungle around there. lol

Notice that the elephant does the snoop Dogg thing when it brings its trunk to its mouth from the ground? It could be dry dust or ashes. Let's hope that the elephant is not trying to get high. 😉😊

Zanimivo! Kadeči slon! Čudovita klofuta agresivnim borcem proti kajenju!

P. S.: Jaz ne kadim, toda borcev proti kajenju imam čez glavo!
