Elephants are majestic, beautiful creatures, and it would be unbelievable to see one in person. I think that this guy takes that to an extreme, however.

While on some type of hike or safari, this man stumbles upon an elephant in the jungle. First he seems in awe at how close he is to the graceful giant, but when the elephant charges he simply holds up his hand to stop it. While most people would run, scream, cry or any combination of the three, this guy has absolutely no fear and brushes off the close encounter. What a champ.
