Shared recently by Indian Foreign Service Saket Badola on Twitter, the video shows two elephants approaching each other and shaking their tusks like humans shake hands before every match. The peaceful demeanour of the jumbos suddenly changed as if a refree in a Judo match had shouted “Hajime“. What followed was an entertaining match as if of an elephant’s martial art. Pushing, defending and combating, the elephants soon ventured off into the jungle, chasing behind one another as people behind the camera cheered on. The video was captioned, “Clash of Titans !! Said to be from West Bengal. Not sure though. @ParveenKaswan @protectwildlife @SanthoshaGubbi any clue??
