In his mind, this baby elephant is the most ferocious, most aggressive, and intimidating creature on the planet, capable of taking down any predators that stand in his way.
One concept that may be true for the boy, before the safari truck, he decided to refuse to move, and the calf was left to his mother for safety.
The touching footage was captured by a group of visitors to Kruger National Park in South Africa and showed the baby elephant’s moment to show his courage.
Running out of the long grass and pick up the parked safari vehicle to confront the small creature, who has watched his brothers too closely, coming in for the kill.
Then he stopped on his way when he saw that the truck had not yet backed off, and after stopping for a split second, he turned on his heels and ran away.
The elephant disguises himself in the long grass for a little while before turning around to face the tourists, keeping himself very still so as to not draw too much attention in the meantime.
After getting his breath back and psyching himself up, he goes in for round two and runs towards the car once more, moving beyond the spot he stopped at previously.

He also moved faster and looked as if he was about to contact the truck before doing a lap without stopping and heading back into the bushes.
Coming to check out the commotion, the calf’s mother suddenly appeared in the frame and walked over to the calf still hiding in the bushes.
Deciding to make a last-ditch effort to chase the car, the baby ran as fast as he could before turning around and taking off one last time.
Humorously, the baby elephant then walks up and stands under his mother for safety and looks back at the amused tourists before swerving down the street away from the truck.
