Imagine cutting a tree down with your NOSE


CanoTheMonkey

*Woody the Woodpecker had entered the chat*


The_Blendernaut

Beavers are following... and curious of this black magic.


ryansports

That’s one way to get your frisbee down.


ToManyFlux

Wish I had him with me at my last round of disc golf.


Least_or_Greatest1

I think he sensed the tree was half dead and put it out it’s misery.

DragonCumBucket

Noted fact. Humans and elephants are the only 2 animals that destroy their own habitat just for the fuck of it.


Enjoying_A_Meal

That elephant had a perfect reason. "Road's closed loser, go home."


SabinedeJarny

Exactly


DragonCumBucket

Hahaha.


helpusobi1

TIL Elephants are assholes.


drpearl

His cousin is Smokey the Bear. Tree was dead, and only you big animals can prevent fires!


greco1492

Some would argue that elephants help there environment as a whole, thses creatures help to keep grasslands that way by taking down trees. They also make divits in the ground that water collects in as well as act as nutrient transports. Granted they do this most likely as a by product of survival but it has opened up a nitch for other animals to thrive in.


PlasticCup69

Elephants take down trees to eat the leafs. And your out here bullying a damn elephant.


AppointmentNo5913

That tree had no leafs…


JFT96__

This is a Marula tree. Looks too dry to have any fruit that he’s trying to shake down, so could be after the roots too. Lots of moisture in a Marula’s roots in the winter


AppointmentNo5913

The elephant didn’t count on the tree snapping at the bottom.. his buddy like, idiot you pushed it to high 😂


DerangedGod

But, as you can see, the rest of trees were green.


JFT96__

I can see some green on what looks like mainly Guarri bushes which will always stay green. The elephant will rather go through the effort of uprooting this tree for roots and bark than eat non nutritious greenery that is left


PlasticCup69

They also eat tree bark.


DerangedGod

Tree bark is hard like coconut. Or like other nuts. And it's the part where all the nutrients are stored before going to the top of the tree.


AppointmentNo5913

Oh see that’s more info, I like it!!! Timber mathasuckers… lol


deathclient

Why? "Because I can"


lsamaha

Beavers do this.


DerangedGod

The tree was probably diseased and died, and the elephant knew it was time to remove it. You just don't leave the dead in the same place where they passed away.


gan8686

Why did this thicc boi do this?


Cold_Situation_7803

To block the road, so he can rob the buses full of tourists.


RobertTV3

“Quick! Cross the river! Now we’re being robbed!”


aleksnowak1

Well, animals are a lot like people, Mrs. Simpson. Some of them act badly because they’ve had a hard life or have been mistreated. But, like people, some of them are just jerks. Stop that, Mr. Simpson.


TripleJeopardy3

Fucking Stampy.


MooseThirty

To flex on those bitch asses


SarahTheStrange

Happy cake day


jsonoson

Maybe to get the leaves at the top to eat?


2EAZY_

I don't see many leaves on that tree. My guess is he blocked the road with the tree so the other elephants could cross safely.


fytem

Probably this. Elephants are smart as hell.


Ambie949

I’m going with this.


GeneralBlumpkin

No way lol. Definitely for the food


H_Aln

That actually makes sense that could be why


MachSh5

My first thought was "Those trees in the back look way more tasty" lol.


lsamaha

That’s what we were told when we visited East Africa. And we learned this eventually turns moist shady forest into dry grassy savanna.


cautioslyinterested

Highway robbery ofcourse.


Wizofsorts

It was leg day


fungalhost

Now I can finally get my frisbee


Ok_Security_8657

Everyone's asking "why?" as if you wouldn't do this *constantly* if you had the ability...


flying_90

How to say “you shall not pass” without actually saying it


Mountain-Possession1

Anyone else Was scared that tree was gonna splinter and elephant get underbelly full of tree ?


chris3110

Or that he was going to get his trunk stuck in the fork.


TomedCeht

Fuck your road


jan0wsky

Felt cute, might take down some trees later, idk


johnmarkfoley

I am the proud and resilient, african plains tree. I stand tall… hey what are doing? Stop that! O dear god!


Queen_eater

PlasticCup69

Falcon_Alpha_Delta

War elephants must’ve been so fucking scary


mark9983

mattsculinity

He's tending his garden, everyone go tend your own.


auntiegrizelda4

Yeah that tree looked half dead already.


Lucky_lui_

It’s setting up a roadblock to ambush the next truck of produce that passes by.


emciclerose

Psh, flex


rian_avisnujra

One minute silence for the people who run away from elephant and climb that tree


ProgressAdmirable678

Fck this tree in particular


nanozeus2014

things they teach in elephant school


DimitriMichaelTaint

Omg dude. I’m like “there ain’t no way that mfer is ending that big ass tree” fuck if he didn’t snap the bitch.


DoinReverseArmadillo

The scientific community isn’t sure either…see https://www.researchgate.net/publication/288395221_Why_do_elephants_damage_savanna_trees


TrickyMixture

That strut after it comes down...


DMHavoX

Got the "My work here is done" vibe to it right?


shake_aleg

Nature's hoodlums. Do not. I repeat. Do not introduce them to spray paints.


Leicabawse

First I thought ‘he’ was shaking it for fruit, but it was a very intentional follow through when he saw the trunk giving way. Like the fellow elephant wandering over to join the buffet at the end!


Mountain-Possession1

Their walk is so deceivingly slow.


JeffinGeorgia1967

Show off


obsertaries

I heard elephants just smash things for reasons no one understands. I guess this is an example?


youareunsubbed

What a flex, I feel that energy.


SeaworthinessIll3255

Put it in the road. What a bad ass.


Negative_Vitality

I think it was tired of people driving through its yard…


myearwood

I'm a lumberjack and I'm ok.


Glittering-Chard8269

That tree was all bark and no bite.

COMFIRMED: ELEPHANTS HATE NATURE


nodalanalysis

But why?


FunHippo3906

Years ago I was camping (border of South Africa and Zimbabwe) and in the middle of the night an elephant pushed a tree over snapping the trunk. We all woke up shitting our selves, it was so loud we thought it was boarder guards having a shootout with someone


Lyonsmade

Why though?


ssp25

His 3 other elephant friends are robbing a bank on the other side of town... This is just a distraction


JACK0NTHETHETRACK

But why?


Better_Ad3178

Chillinturtles35

So cool to see an animal that big *really* put their back into it.

Damn, imagine being a bird whose nest was up there.


chimneysweeeper

Thanks dad, but my kite is in the other tree


phillygirllovesbagel

But why?


wead4

Why he do this though


Modsrbiased

That elephant wasn't a fan of the road and wanted his buddies to cross safely so put a tree on the road thats a big brain elephant move.


RottenHerring69

"You shall not pass!"


granoladeer

Did he want to block the street?


RDtheBRAVE

You shall not pass!


pe-ce

Elephant said , you shall not pass


Kerrykingz

Maybe he doesn’t like the folks driving on that road?


ordinaryphenomena

I just love it.. Never seen so elegant destruction.. i believe the nesting birds would think otherwise.. but F them, there's more trees nearby.

Humans: Damn, a thunderstorm must have happened here last night. Elephant last night:


Godzilla500bc

He did that to block the human road of poachers and tourists with their fucking iPhone cameras


genmazz

Did he have to drop it right in the road?! How inconvenient lol.


CyberPoenk

he ain't a tree hugger that's for sure


8heist

His frisbee must have gotten stuck


Bawkszzzzzz

This seems like it took more energy than it would get from those leaves


GrossBoyy_

We worry so much about humans deforesting the rainforests, but we ignore this shiz.

YOU'RE so brave - YOU talk to him!

Blocking the road, fuckin humans

Note to self: Elephants included in the list of “don’t climb a tree if being followed by” alongside bears.

Horse power sucks, need elephant power.


Rockybroo_YT

Humans: hold my coffee


Flashy_Ice2460

I do wonder if we are All here to dissolve mater. In the way of throwing down trees, chewing and excreting.


Interesting_Engine37

It looks like the fruits wouldn’t come down, so…..also, that is not a healthy tree.


AuraMaster7

This is how the prehistoric forests of Africa turned into the Savannahs we have today. Large Elephantids trampling smaller younger trees, and tearing down larger older trees to make room for the smaller brush that they want to eat.


Padpudd

That’s a fun game :)


Quirky_Eye6775

And this proves that they are smart creatures. How many of you, if you were a elephant, would do the same as that guy?


ChairBiscuit

The trap is set


Familiar-Influence91

No-Summer-8406

So he just left it in the middle of the road, he must not paid attention in school to properly take down a dead tree


XinjDK

Wasn't there like a questionaire where a lot of Americans thought they could take an elephant while unarmed? - I feel they should see this video first


Awestromy

Is he establishing dominance, or just releasing energy 😂


lexm

This elephant is gearing up to rob the pony express.


No-Region-255

In an alternate universe humans never developed machine skills. Instead we evolved spiritually and developed telepathy with animals. And we use elephants as lumber jacks

“Yep…. I just blocked that fucking road bitch “

Elephant: “where u gonna drive now hUmAn?”


Inevitable-Income651

There was a sugarcane truck passing through everyday at 11:05 so the elephants ganged up to create an aversion and steal the canes.


Space-90

I always imagined that if I was in a bad situation where I needed to run from an elephant I would just run up a tree. I’m realizing now that there’s no escaping an elephant in the wild
