Should you ever find yourself stuck behind specimens of the Elephantidae species on your travels, please think twice about passing them. Here’s why.

While we occasionally bemoan the way cars have fattened up over the decades, elephants are generally bigger than your average family sedan.


Significantly bigger.

Not only are they bigger, they have massive muscles.


Observe the way an elephant’s musculature makes mincemeat of a Volkswagen Bora!

The end result is a state you generally don’t want to find yourself in Africa. Drive safe. Don’t overtake elephants.
