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!

Kind Truckers Feed Thirsty Elephant Orphan

Truck schedules and business are forgotten when African truckers spy a thirsty baby elephant stumbling alone down a highway. After feeding the dehydrated elephant all the water they had, they notify local authorities and the Elephant Sands rescue group. Because taking care of even a dog-sized elephant is complicated and time-consuming, junior's now recovering in the expert care of Elephants Without Borders, where she'll hopefully be reintroduced into the wild after she's full-grown. Although this lucky calf has a bright future ahead of her, volunteers worry others like her will face abandonment or death should Botswana's watering holes continue to shrink.

Bull Elephant Roughs Up Youngster & Sharks Don't 'Get' Personal Space

As romanticized as Nature is, this video from Addo Elephant National Park is a shocking reminder there's a lot in Mother Nature that seems callous from a human perspective. This tiny elephant calf just happened to be in the way of a frisky bull elephant, who obviously had no qualms about tossing the fragile youngster around to get to the ladies! Thankfully, baby's okay and quickly joined by protective babysitters. People talk about the magic of "getting back to nature," but after having a Great White Shark almost pop out of our screen, we'd rather keep our distance! via ViralHog View Now
