This is Why Elephants Don't Give Hi Fives

Offbeat

A group of German tourists on an African safari receive a friendly visit from a five-ton male elephant.

The African elephant is one of the most dangerous animals on the planet. In fact it kills more humans every year then any other animal. So when these German tourists, who were on a safari in South Africa, encountered one, they shouldn't have been too surprised when the mighty beast wondered over to say hello. The five-ton male elephant was minding its own business fighting another elephant, when suddenly the out-of-town visitors caught its eye.

As a warning to get the hell out of dodge, the giant mammal gently tapped on the car's side window with its tusk - immediately shattering the glass. Amazingly, no one was hurt and they even joked the security deposit on the car was probably a goner. They’re lucky that’s all they lost.
