This is the moment a hungry elephant stood on its hind legs to pluck a jackfruit from the top of a 25ft tree in southern India.
The elephant was filmed stretching out in the trees in Silent Valley National Park in Palakkad district in Kerala state earlier this month.
Footage shows the elephant rear up and grabbing the snack from its trunk while flapping its ears to keep cool in the 93.2F (34C) heat.
The elephant stands by the tree, eating food on the ground, before looking up to gauge the fruit’s height.
The elephant then stretched its hind legs up the tree with its mouth open, placing its front legs on the trunk.
It stretched out its trunk to grab the fruit and break it from the branch, causing it to fall to the ground, where the elephant began to eat it.
The Indian elephant, which can grow to 11.5 feet tall and weigh 787 stones.
