The weight of an elephant’s body alone is enough to kill a human being. These lumbering animals are usually not dangerous, but when provoked, they’re a lot more dangerous than you think. Under the careful eye of a trained professional, humans can pet elephants and get up close to their over-large ears and tough skin. When they are provoked, though, elephant trunks and powerful stomp can trample a human being in a matter of seconds. Stay as far away as possible from an elephant if you see it’s agitated or aggressive. Male elephants are most dangerous when they’re in musth, which is an increased state of testosterone. This is when they’re looking to breed with females and are on the hunt. During this time, don’t go anywhere near the elephant (via Best Life Online).
