'It only takes courage to face (fight) your fears', that's what most parents often teach their kids...including animals!
We often hear stories of how bravely a mother animal saved her child, or how a human parents fight off a kidnappers to safeguard their kids, but what we have here is an truly inspiring story of bravery.


A baby elephant got strayed from his herd, and was later attacked by a group of 14 lions, all of whom were visibly hungry enough to pull down the down at once.
But what happened next is quite impossible to imagine, clearly the elephant was outnumbered and at one point three lionesses climbed on his back but to our surprise he escaped to live.
The baby elephant was able to fend them off, and rather started chasing them. While watching this video you may cringe for the elephant's victory and wonder, why he wandered from his folks but rest assured, this video also has a happy ending.
Now this elephant has been named ‘Hercules' for his exemplary courage...
