Move over, Richard Scarry. There’s a new elephant in town with REAL manners.
Elephants get a bad rep in Africa by farmers due to their tendency to raid and trample farms and fences. So it was a pleasant surprise when photographer heli_elo of Reddit shared the above photo of a very polite elephant stepping over a farmer’s fence.
Elephants aren’t always so polite. They are incredibly smart and strong and have a tendency to just Hulk smash stuff out of their way.
But we can’t lay blame on solely elephants.
In any case, good on you, polite elephant. Good on you.
