Bull elephant charge captured on gopro
There are a lot of crazy things on my bucket list.
Being charged by a wild bull elephant- wasn’t one of them.
I have grown up partly in the jungles, had a lot of close encounters with wildlife, but this one is something I will remember for a long, long time.
During a recent trip to Bandipur-Mudumalai, through fault of my own, I ended up way too close to a wild tusker.
The inevitable short mock charge that followed, was one of the few heart stopping moments I’ve ever had in my life.
I am thankful, but surprised that the enraged pachyderm didn’t press home the charge - for there was nothing between us except a few feet of open ground.
The moral of the story is in Rudyard Kipling’s laws of the jungle, from the jungle book: "Now this is the law of the jungle, as old and as true as the sky,
And the wolf that shall keep it may prosper, but the wolf that shall break it must die.
Keep peace with the lords of the jungle, the tiger, the panther, the bear;
And trouble not Hathi (the elephant) the Silent, and mock not the boar in his lair.” #wildelephants#animalsattack#wildencounters#closeencounters#bulltuskers#tusker#elephantcharge#naturesfury#angrywildlife#angryanimals#wildlifeplanet#wildindia#respectwildlife#respectthejungle
REVIEW/SCREEN-CAPS DROPPING TOMORROW MORNING!
Razorback (1984) Dir: Russell Mulcahy. Somewhere deep in the Australian outback there’s a marauding, indestructible creature that can rip a man in half and destroy a homestead in seconds.
This giant freak of nature is nine hundred pounds of tusk and muscle – and it is hell bent on terrorizing the small isolated community of “Gamulla” – a town as violent and primitive as the beast that threatens it.

I'm watching Ants and the scariest thing so far is the chef is wearing sandals in the kitchen. I know his feet is a ways from the food but still that's nasty. I dont want my dinner breathing the same air as some dude's toes.
The dvd has a super generic cover which is insane since the vhs has one of the greatest covers of all time. I mean look at that! You are repulsed by the ants yet you are also like hey now!
Basically poisonous ants are attacking the residents of a hotel/inn though it's a TV movie so the residents ain't gonna be doing nothing too nasty before becoming ant food. And it will be up to some of the greatest TV movie actors of the 70s to stop them. I'm talking Bernie Casey, Suzanne Sommers, Robert Foxworth and Brian Freaking Dennehy. It even stars Lynda Day George. Oh if she starts screaming Bastard! at the ants I will be so happy.
Caption 2: Would you kill boob ants with a breasticide spray?
Caption 3: I told her she had to be careful about cleavage crumbs. (Cleavage Crumbs sounds like best suspect from the board game Clue ever!)
