For a healthy adult African elephant, even a herd of lions would not dare to do anything because of the difference in strength, the size is too large, even if it kills the prey, the hunters must pay a lot.
Moreover, elephants are very territorial animals, like hippos, they will mercilessly attack anyone who dares to invade their area. However, there are always exceptions.
In this video, the buffalo is just passing by, there is no hostility, but the giant elephant still has a “warning” action.
However, something unexpected happened. The buffalo seemed to feel the pressure from the opponent, but it was not afraid to turn around and ready to fight despite the large size difference.
It was the sudden action from one of the most capricious species in the world that startled the elephant, involuntarily retreating continuously.
