Two animal videos out of the millions are getting a lot of attention in social media this week. Take a look:

Charging elephant

A tourist came face to face with an elephant at a wildlife sanctuary in northern Thailand when the animal came charging out of a thick jungle directly towards him. Tor Bowling’s reaction was not to run or jump, but simply to put up his hand. The elephant then stopped, turned and walked away. Though he was scared, he told the New York Daily News: “But I’m sure. It didn’t want to hurt me.”


Great white shark

A man in Sydney claimed he had an unexpected close encounter with a great white shark. The video shows the man jumping from a popular jumping rock in Sydney Harbor with a GoPro camera on his head.
