A video of a tiger sneakily sitting behind an elephant has gone viral on social media, with many left wondering what happened next.
Shared on Twitter by business tycoon Anand Mahindra, the 59-second clip shows an elephant casually grazing on a field. However, when the camera zooms in, a tiger can be spotted camouflaged in the bushes behind the elephant.
“‘Tyger Tyger, burning bright, ….. In what distant deeps or skies. Burnt the fire of thine eyes?’ William Blake’s famous poem comes alive in this amazing clip,” tweeted Mahindra.
According to the post, the video was shot at the Nagarhole National Park And Tiger Reserve and sent to the businessman’s sister, who lives in Coorg.

Can a single tiger take on an elephant all alone? Just curious

Very lucky to spot the big cat. All my previous visits, I could only see leopards.

More encounters like this clearly shows that they are getting closer to human habitats and they are not afraid. Need to stop deforestation.

Such a fierce gaze! I hope I will get to see a tiger in the wild shortly. I am keeping my fingers crossed.
