Brave baby elephant survives 14-lion attack

Brave baby elephant survives 14-lion attack

Lions have nothing on this little guy.

A one-year-old elephant survived an attack by 14 lions at Zambia's Norman Carr Safaris Chinzombo Camp. The elephant had strayed from its mother, but after a struggle, he managed to safely flee the lions.

The video was captured (and narrated) by journalist Jesse Nash, Long Island University art professor Dan Christoffel, naturalist Steve Baker, and Australian TV star Nina Karnikowski, who were all on a safari when they witnessed the scene, according to the New York Post.

The elephant, nicknamed Hercules by the safari guides, has since been reunited with his family. --Meghan DeMaria
