A safari motorcade in South Africa”s Kruger National Park was treated to a remarkable display of road safety when an elephant stepped into the road to play crossing guard. She stopped traffic so the rest of the herd could cross.
The real reason for this amazing display of caution becomes abundantly clear when you see a baby elephant hurrying across the road alongside mom. This just goes to show you how much we have in common with these highly intelligent creatures.

Something tells me those folks weren”t too bothered by this particular roadblock. Getting to witness the bond of an elephant family is something they”ll probably cherish forever.
