Hungry elephant stood on its hind legs to pluck a jackfruit from a tree

This was when a hungry elephant stood on its hind legs to pluck a jackfruit from the top of a 25ft tree in southern India.

The elephant was filmed stretching up the tree in the Silent Valley National Park of Palakkad District in Kerala earlier this month.

The elephant rears up and snatches the treat in its trunk while flapping its ears to keep cool in the intense heat.

Before looking up to assess the fruit’s height, the elephant stands by a tree and eats food from the ground.

The elephant raises onto its hind legs and climbs the tree, resting its front legs on the trunk with its mouth wide open.

The elephant uses its trunk to grab the fruit and break it from the tree, making it fall to the ground, where the elephant begins eating it.

Indian elephants can grow up to 11.5 feet tall and weigh 787 stones.
