A young elephant charged a safari vehicle in South Africa’s Kruger National Park to show who's boss.“While watching a whole herd of elephants peacefully going about their daily routine, we suddenly saw a young male elephant running towards us while rumbling and trumpeting,” the filmer said. “This young male was at the age of reaching puberty,” the filmer explained. “Heightened levels of testosterone drive these young males, and they become very irritated and aggressive.”“This young male clearly wanted to show off his dominance through his several demonstration charges,” the filmer said. “Eventually, the arrogant young elephant was done showing off and ran off towards the rest of the herd.”“This encounter was a thrilling experience for everyone on the vehicle and definitely had everybody’s hearts racing,” the filmer added.
