It’s hard to truly convey the size and power of this charging African elephant, but this video can give you a slight hint.

From The Telegraph:

When a bull elephant comes charging at you, it’s normal to feel like running away.

But these hikers at Kruger National Park in South Africa knew better and calmly stood their ground when the huge animal approached them with a roar.

Cornel Rademeyer, the group’s walking safari guide, said that if the hikers had backed off the elephant may have followed through with its charge.
