The best way to experience the wild isn't from a distance but up close and personal. Unless of course, the animals are incredibly dangerous...then watch yourself! Whether saying hello to you or chasing one another (or YOU) away, these wild beasts have got something to say.

Thirsty Elephant Charges Through Village & Never Say 'No' To A Rhino

Nothing will send you diving for cover like a thirsty, frustrated elephant! Unfortunately, there's no water to be found in this Indian village, only plenty of things to break. Luckily for the humans involved, they all escape Mr. Elephant's wrath—even the clueless biker who rides straight into the action! Garth De Bruno Austin has quite the tale to tell after the veteran photographer's African photo shoot once again brings him face-to-face with a friendly female rhino. Apparently, he's been shooting in that area long enough for the powerful animal to feel comfortable asking for a scratch. Otherwise, this encounter would be a dangerous no-no. Garth's now filming his own feature documentary about rhino poaching called "Disunity." It'll be a must-watch when it premieres later this year! View Now

But even after he's free, seems like our thankful hedgehog tries to stick around for a while! On the other hand, a crafty raccoon feasting in a fast food dumpster barely says "thank you" to his human rescuer before he's quickly off to his next greasy feast. View Now

Time To Cross The River! & Elephants Don't Love The Camera

Catching a glimpse of wildlife interacting with their natural habitat is something quite special. Mark Williams (@falcnr) witnessed the amazing moment a pride of lions braved a raging river to get to the other side. If you haven't seen an animal disapprove of the presence of cameras, now is your chance. Wildlife Protection Solutions set up a 360-degree camera near a watering hole to capture the behavior of elephants. By the looks of it, the animals aren't very fond of the idea. View Now
