What would you do when you get a serious case of the munchies? You would probably turn over rocks and knock down trees to get your fix and this elephant is no different.

One adult elephant stopped trucks in the middle of traffic, so that he can munch on some of the potatoes they were carrying! This incredible video, shot in Garhbeta forest area in West Bengal in eastern India, has taken the internet by storm. The 40 second footage was cut out of a 2 minute video, shot by the other drivers with their mobile phones.

The adult male Indian elephant stops the truck, then approaches the back, removes the tarp and starts picking on the goods and stuffing them in his mouth! Nothing, not even the screaming of the drivers or the firecrackers that they were throwing at his feet made the elephant change his mind and run off. He didn’t even attack - the elephant just stood there, stuffed his trunk in the back a few times and chomped those potatoes.

According to accounts, the elephant left the truckers unharmed and without a scratch on his thick hide, but we can’t say the same for the truckers’ booty. At least his belly was full.
