It's true tigers are apex predators but even they don't like to mess with elephants. A video shared by Indian Forest Service (IFS) officer Susanta Nanda shows a tiger making way for a herd of elephants in a jungle.
The video shows a group of elephants walking down a forest path, as soon as the tiger spots the elephants, the big cat sits down and waits for the herd to pass. The herd advances slowly, catching sight of the big cat but seemingly unconcerned about it.
Along with the video, the caption reads, "This is how animals communicate & maintain harmony... Elephant trumpets on smelling the tiger. The king gives way to the titan herd."

In the wild, tigers usually prey on large or medium-sized mammals like deer, monkeys and boars. Instances of tigers hunting full-grown elephants are rare, but not unheard of.
