Watch: Jumbos protect baby elephants from lion attack

Screengrab from the video.

Indian Forest Service officer and wildlife enthusiast Susanta Nanda shared a rare video on Wednesday that showed a lion suddenly appearing in the vicinity of a herd of wild elephants grazing with two little calves in the forest.

The herd reacts instantly and with military-like precision forms a ring around the two babies as part of their strategy to fend off any attack from the predator.

Susanta Nanda wrote, “On seeing the lion, elephants form a circle around the young calves for protecting the young baby. In wild, no animal does it better than elephant herd.”
