Payback Time: Elephant’s Forceful Response to Lion’s Demands for Protection Fee at Man-Made Waterhole


Elephants are very large herbivores and they are ready to fight with any other animal including lions, rhinos, hippos…

The fights between elephants and lions happen often and those are the most fascinating battles.

Lions are rarely able to take down elephants so these are the rare moments when lions can attack a lonely elephant.

The lion hides and waits for the opportunity to attack, but the elephant is the one who takes the initiative, the lion is quickly defeated and runs away.


In fact, lions can only hunt old and weak elephants and newborn elephants, a whole herd of lions can do that. Moments when an elephant fights 10 lions and wins are not uncommon in the wild.
