This is a great video! A safari in Kruger National Park in South Africa is streamed live on YouTube. The guide in a jeep meets a group of elephants who eat at their leisure. A youngster with a lot of bravado wants to show that he is not afraid and comes very close to the jeep. And clearly show that you are not impressed by the much larger jeep.
He throws his ears wide and flaps his mini trunk. The camera continues to rotate and shows how the elephant wants to impress the jeep and its passengers. They just have to laugh at the young animal. The images are very moving.
In the 10 minutes that the video lasts, the cub keeps coming back. While his mother walks on slowly.
