  1. 🐘Elephant and Lions fight🐯

    – Explain what is happening in the video.
    An elephant is defending its self and a pride of lions come along and one of the lions expects a piggy back from the elephant the elephant was all like No way and ran into the water a few of he lions followed but the elephant started splashing water around and somehow the lions are afraid of water but still went in, it’s like Deng wanting a bulldog but being scared of a tiny dog probably will be in America before he even sees the bulldog, so the lions are adrenalin junkies, after that another lion wanted a piggy back at the same time so there were two lions on a elephants beck biting into it, if it was me and I was an elephant I would just sit down really fast.

    – Describe why the lions attacked this elephant.
    There are 4 reasons they attacked this certain elephant
    1. It is really big but really young, so they being really stupid would think that the elephant was stupid but it wasn’t.
    2. Outnumbered, so 1 elephant on to more than a dozen lions, that seems really fair.
    3. This is not ice age, Lions and Elephants aren’t friends and probably will never be friends, this isn’t ice age, no Diego and Manny!
    4. They attacked it because they thought they could take it down lions are known for some of the scariest animals ever! Besides the 3 Ss (Spiders,Sharks and Snakes) and 1H (heights)

    – Explain the feelings that the two types of animals would have had during the altercation.
    Maybe If it was me I would be feeling like a stand over to the lions because I’m bigger and I obviously won half way through, the lions got scared of the elephant half way through oh and if it was me I’d probably kill the lion that dug its claws into the back of the elephant expecting a
    piggy back ride.

    – Do you believe lions should still be called the ‘King of Beasts’? Explain your answer.
    Yeah, one video with a lion being beaten it happens every now and then, doesn’t mean that elephants are better than lions, just means the lions lost a fight no biggie, so yeah they should still be called “The king of beasts” but to be honest nobody calls them that they’re just lions that scare people.

  2. – Explain what is happening in the video.
    In the video the lions were trying to hunt down the elephant but the elephant fort the lions off and the elephant was outnumbered by 14 lionesses and there was only one elephant defending its self from being eaten by lions. The lions were trying to take done the elephant but the elephant was too strong to get eaten by 14 lions and the lions outnumbered the elephant.
    – Describe why the lions attacked this elephant.
    I think that the lions attack the elephant because the lions were hungry and that the male lion wanted to eat something and the lions thought that the elephant was an easy target for the lions and that’s maybe why the lions wanted to eat the elephant
    – Explain the feelings that the two types of animals would have had during the altercation.
    I think that the elephant would be feeling like he is a garner because the elephant was outnumbered by the lions. After the attack the elephant would of felt relieved that it has survived the attack from the lions and the elephant would of felt proud that it has survived from 14 lions. The lions would have felt glade that they have got an easy kill and to eat. After the attack the lions would felt disappointed that they don’t have any food to eat and they can’t eat for the rest of the day.
    – Do you believe lions should still be called the ‘King of Beasts’? Explain your answer.
    I think that the lions should steel be the kings of Beasts because that is the only video that I have seen a lion to not bring its prey.

  3. Explain what is happening in the video.
    The lion are trying to jump on the elephant and the elephant is scaring them by going in the water and splashing them in the water.
    Describe why the lions attacked this elephant. Because it’s big and juice and looks like it’s good to eat. So they can have some food to eat and not stave for the day. Because is big and they would be enough for everyone there to eat. Because it’s one of the biggest animals in Africa that’s good to eat
    Explain the feelings that the two types of animals would have had during the altercation. I think the lion would feel like he can’t do this because he so big but he has to or there would not be anything good to eat. The lions would feel tuff and strong. I the elephant would feel out number and annoyed because they keep jumping on him every single time.
    Do you believe lions should still be called the ‘King of Beasts’? Explain your answer. I don’t think the lions should be the king because they were getting scared of the elephant before and I thought that lion are not scared of anything and is the king.

  4. Explain what is happening in the video.
    In the video a pride of lionesses attacked what looked like a baby elephant. The baby elephant was at the end of the water and out of nowhere lioness’s started to leap onto baby elephants back.

    Describe why the lions attacked this elephant.
    I think the lionesses attacked the elephant because it was a small elephant and they could have been hungry. I think this because lions are on top of the food chain and they do need to eat. Another reason why the lionesses could have attacked the elephant is because they could have outnumbered it. There were 14 lionesses and only 1 baby elephant.

    Explain the feelings that the two types of animals would have had during the altercation.
    ELEPHANT: At the start of the altercation the elephant could have been feeling worried. I think this because there were 15 lionesses and the elephant could be feeling overpowered. In the middle of the fight the elephant could be feeling strong. I think this because the elephant had taken on 14 lionesses and he might have been bitten but that would have been the worse. At the end the elephant could have been feeling proud. I think this because the elephant wasn’t taken back to the lion’s and wasn’t eaten.
    LIONESSES: At the start the lionesses could have been feeling strong. I think this because they thought that they could outnumber the elephant. In the middle the lions could have been feeling remorseful. I think this because they tried to fight the elephant but so far they are losing. At the end the lionesses could be feeling disappointed. I think this because they tried to fight one tiny little elephant but they lost and there were 14 of them.

    Do you believe lions should still be called the ‘King of Beasts’? Explain your answer.
    I think that they should still be called KING OF THE BEASTS because it’s not like they are going to lose every time they fight an elephant. This elephant might have fought off lions before. The next time the lions will verse an elephant they will learn from their mistakes.

  5. Explain what is happening in the video- A brave and poor elephant has been attacked by these horrible furious lions, and then they kept on hurting the elephant because they wanted to eat it. After they kept on attacking it and annoying it the elephant went so psycho and crazy and made the lions petrified. The lions kept on chasing after the elephants, and when they did the elephant was so angry that the elephant started chasing after the lions and scared them to death.

    Describe why the lions attacked this elephant- I think the lions attacked the elephant, because they were hungry and they wanted something big delicious and excruciating to eat. I think the lions kept on attacking the elephant because the elephant was trying to attack them.

    Explain the feelings that the two types of animals would have had during the altercation- At first when the lions kept on attacking the elephant I think the elephant would have been worried and scared because they could kill the elephant and eat it. I think the elephant got really angry because the lions kept on annoying it. I think the lions thought that they were all strong at first because the elephant was finding it hard to move since there was a horrible, lion on its back. I thin k after the elephant chased the lions the lions felt so petrified.

    Do you believe lions should still be called the ‘King of Beasts’? Explain your answer- No because there are plenty of other animals that are stronger than lions. Just because lions win in fights most of the time doesn’t mean they are the best.

  6. – Explain what is happening in the video. The lions were attacking the elephant by jumping on it biting it to bring it down so they can bring it to the male lions and then the elephant stood up for itself and attacked the lions with its tusks and its trunk.
    – Describe why the lions attacked this elephant. Because they were hungry and they thought they could take it down because they were in a pack and there were only one of the elephant and 14 lions but they didn’t take it down because the elephant scared them away.
    – Explain the feelings that the two types of animals would have had during the altercation. The elephant would be feeling brave because he knows that the lions can’t take him down and the lions are feeling like they can take the elephant down because they have more them then him.
    – Do you believe lions should still be called the ‘King of Beasts’? Explain your answer. No because they were scared of the little elephant they kept on running away from the elephant when it came at them but when it was not looking they would attack it from behind and the males would feel cross with the lion ness by not taking it down and bring it for them to eat.

  7. – Explain what is happening in the video.
    In the video there was some lions trying to attack An Elephant there was about 14 lions onto one Elephant.
    – Describe why the lions attacked this elephant.
    The lions probably attacked because they thought no other animal can take it down.
    – Explain the feelings that the two types of animals would have had during the altercation.
    I think the Elephant would of felt terrified because there is mor of them than more of him.
    – Do you believe lions should still be called the ‘King of Beasts’? Explain your answer. The

  8. In this video, there are 14 lioness’s attacking a small elephant, almost badly injuring it, but the elephant didn’t stand down, he STOOD HIS GROUND, and fought back. Then the elephant ends up scaring them off because it is much bigger and more intimidating than something small like a lion.
    I the reason why the lions attacked the elephant was because they were hungry and saw the elephant all alone with no protection whatsoever, so they thought they would have a good chance of a pretty decent meal, but I think they might go hungry if they don’t find anything soon.
    Lioness’s: They would be feeling very confident about catching the elephant, but after the ordeal, they would go home very disappointed (and maybe a little hungry), because they had been scared off by their prey. Elephant: He would be feeling very stressed and concerned as he saw the lions coming, and when they were onto him, but then when he scared them off, he would be feeling relieved and tough because he thought he had done a good job for standing up for himself.
    I do believe they still should be called the ‘King of Beasts’ because even though they were scared off by an elephant, I bet a human or another small thing could not scare a lion off, because we are not very big and strong. Also, the reason why there are so many lions in the world is because they know how to catch, kill, and eat whatever they get, so they should still be the King of Beasts because they pretty much are kings of beasts.

  9. – Explain what is happening in the video.
    All the 14 lions are ganging up on this one elephant that is defending itself to stay alive the lion are hungry just to get the delouses meal lions torturing pain on him excruciating pain the poor elephant.
    – Describe why the lions attacked this elephant.
    The lions attacked the elephant because it is big and juicy and it will fill up all there tummy and they probably won’t eat for about two days.
    – Explain the feelings that the two types of animals would have had during the altercation. I the lion were happy when they got the elephant they thought good we got him now were to eat him. And the elephant thinking that that is going to save me or maybe there water over there the lions cannot swim so I will go.

    – Do you believe lions should still be called the ‘King of Beasts’? Explain your answer no because if that was a tiger it kill it easily lions have to go in packs and tigers are more ferocious

  10. Elephant and lion fights

    Explain what is happening in the video.
    In the video there was a good size elephant and 14 lioness where trying to kill the elephant and the elephant was fighting them of one of the lioness were on his/her back and didn’t come off until the elephant went into the water then the elephant kept on charging at the lioness and got away from them by going across the river.

    Describe why the lions attacked this elephant.
    The lioness attacked this elephant because it was small enough that the pack could take the elephant down and to take it back to the male lions so they can eat it and they would get the left overs and they think they can’t get killed because they’re at the top of the food chain the elephant was fighting to protect him/herself against the lions and to try and get away from the lions so the elephant could survive and maybe go back to its family and keep on living from the attack unless it dies from the bites.

    Explain the feelings that the two types of animals would have had during the altercation.
    The elephant would be feeling a lot of pain from the lion bites which would make the elephant feel frightened of death and the lions killing it. The lions would be feeling like they’re huge because there in a pack of 14 and that they can take down anything that they want. After the elephant went into the water and started to charge at them they were feeling afraid of dying by the elephant so one of them followed the elephant into the water but the elephant turned around and started to charge at them again so they decided to stop attacking the elephant. The elephant would be feeling scared that it might die from the attack and maybe get a disease from the bites of the lions or something else or maybe the same lions will attack it again.

    – Do you believe lions should still be called the ‘King of Beasts’? Explain your answer.
    Yes I do because the lions want die because they don’t hunt for the animals they eat only the female lioness hunt for food so they can survive and if the lioness die the males will still be able to hunt for food and survive if they keep on hunting for food and if they share the food with other lions they might be able to survive unless they start to kill each other for food and if all of the other animals die the next animal will be at the top of the food chain which will be helpful for them because they will not die by any other animals because there at the top of the food chain and they will survive which can help them get more food because they won’t be dying from animals above them in the food chain.

  11. – Explain what is happening in the video.
    There are 14 proud lions attacking 1 young elephant that was on its own. Some of the lions were trying to kill the elephant so they can eat with their families. The elephant was scaring the 14 lions so they couldn’t hurt the elephant. The proud 14 lions where chasing the poor elephant and the lions thought that they were certain that they would get the elephant but I think that the lions thinking has changed and that the elephant is now more confident that it can fight off the lions.
    – Describe why the lions attacked this elephant.
    The pride of blood thirsty lions thought that they would attack the terrified elephant so it could kill its prey and eat it. The elephant was afraid at the start but as he began to frighten off the lions he became more confident and courageous.
    – Explain the feelings that the two types of animals would have had during the altercation.
    The lions would feel that they are confident to attack the elephant and the elephant would feel livid and frightened because the pride of the lions are attacking the poor elephant jumping on it’s back.
    – Do you believe lions should still be called the ‘King of Beasts’? Explain your answer.
    No! I think that an elephant has a change that they could have a stronger strength to scared animals that tried to eat elephants.

  12. Explain what is happening in the video.
    They was 14 lions to 1 baby elephant the lions lose by lost.
    Describe why the lions attacked this elephant
    14 lions were getting 1 elephant and the lions lose
    Explain the feelings that the two types of animals would have had during the altercation.They lions were feeling very pond that they were getting the lion and the elephant was feeling very sore
    Do you believe lions should still be called the ‘King of Beasts’? Explain your answer.
    No because the lions were a bended baby an elephant and it was 14 to 1 an the elephant still bet the lions.

  13. Explain what is happening in the video. I can see 14 lions attacking an elephant because it is all by its self and the 14 lions thought they could outnumber the elephant because there was only one elephant and lots of lions but it didn’t work because the elephant was fighting back with all his might. That is the same with the lions they just wouldn’t give up because of how many lions they had. Even though the elephant had to take on that much it still didn’t give up. Soon the elephant went in to the water and the lions were slower in the water than an elephant but they still followed then the elephant rapidly turned around and chased all of the lions that were in the water with him. The elephant was back on land and the lions were starting to attack again but at last the elephant chased them of with his mighty horns under his mouth.

    Describe why the lions attacked this elephant. I think the lions attacked the elephant because they thought they could outnumber the elephant but the elephant was a lot stronger than they thought. But I think they were thinking who cares how big it is we have a whole pack of lions but even when they attacked the elephant it wouldn’t give up because there was still was a little chance that the elephant could survive. That is why the elephant wouldn’t give up even if there was no chance of surviving. The elephant was strong enough to beat the lions so the elephant could go back to doing what he was doing before which I think the elephant was taking a drink in the water where he was drinking in.

    Explain the feelings that the two types of animals would have had during the altercation. I think they both would of felt victory as they both went and were fighting because the elephant is big but then again the lions had a pack so I recon any one of them could be the winner. But surprisingly the elephant won because of how big it was. I recon the lions would have been a little sad when the elephant was trying to get rid of them but it am nature. Plus the elephant would have felt the same when the lions were trying to kill it by biting it and clawing it and jumping on it. When the lions ran away from the elephant I think they would have felt embarrass because they had to walk away from there pray and they would have had to go and find some other pray they can get or they could starve and not eat anything. The elephant would feel really happy that he has gotten away from the lions.

    Do you believe lions should still be called the ‘King of Beasts’? Explain your answer. I think the lions should still be called the king of beasts because that was only luck that the elephant got away from the lions because the elephant was in the water and on land and the lions are a lot slower on water than land that is why the elephant just got away from the lions. I think the elephant should be really happy because the elephant got away from 14 lions so only like 1 in 100 would survive something like that. So that is why I think the lions should still be could the king of the beast. The elephant got away because the lions were probably tiered because they probably chased something else before.

  14. In the video there is a pride of lioness trying to hunt down one young elephant and eat it but somehow they can’t succeed because the young elephant is defending its self from the lioness.
    The lions attacked the elephant because it was outnumbered and there was only one elephant and 14 lions. I also think the lioness attacked the elephant because they need to feed their family.
    I think the lions would have been feeling nervous about trying to kill the elephant because it is big then the lion’s elephant feels terrified because he was having a nice day and then out of know where.
    I think lions shouldn’t be king of beast because there is a lot lager and powerful animals then a lion such as an elephant a lion is only strong because they hunt in packs.

  15. – Explain what is happening in the video.
    In the video there are fourteen ferocious looking lionesses which were trying hard to attack a small elephant. Two curious lioness leaped onto the small elephant of the There is one small sized African elephant which struggled for its life. The brave young elephant was able to drive off all fourteen lionesses. But the lionesses did not give up without a fight and chased after the elephant as it tried to escape into the knee deep water. The elephant wadded to the other side followed by 3 curious lionesses but the elephant did not tolerate that and charged towards the elephant driving the lionesses towards the other side of the river. I think the elephant did this because it thought the river looked deep. Where the other twelve lionesses waited without any hope left. In the video the elephant ran deep into the river and two lionesses followed and when the elephant reached the other side he quickly charged towards the two lionesses.

    – Describe why the lions attacked this elephant.
    I think the lionesses attacked this elephant because it was small and looked helpless to the ability of the lionesses. I think the lionesses attacked the small elephant because the lionesses thought because the elephant is so small and all alone and we have fourteen lionesses all together we can take down this elephant. I think the lionesses attacked this small elephant because the elephant looked defenceless and weak. I think this because the elephant is small and usually small elephants haven’t learned how to fight off its predators. I think the lions attacked the small elephant because they wanted to take the large prey back home to the den so everybody in the pride can enjoy a nice large meal.

    – Explain the feelings that the two types of animals would have had during the altercation.
    I think the lionesses were feeling confident because they had fourteen lions and there was only one small elephant. I think the elephant was feeling shocked, petrified, worried, and livid. I think the elephant was feeling shocked because he was standing there looking at fourteen large lionesses which started pouncing onto the small elephants back and started biting in it the neck and in the middle of the back. I think the elephant was feeling petrified because the lionesses looked huge even though the elephant was much bigger the lionesses were looked overweight. I think the elephant was feeling worried because the lionesses started chasing the elephant into the river. I think the elephant was feeling livid when he charged towards the lionesses which scared them away. I think the elephant was feeling relieved when all the lionesses backed off. I think the lionesses were feeling ashamed and disappointed in them-selves because the let one small elephant calf defeat fourteen lionesses.

    – Do you believe lions should still be called the ‘King of Beasts’? Explain your answer.
    I think the lions should not continue to be known as the ‘King of Beasts’ because fourteen lionesses let one small elephant calf beat them. I think elephants should be known as the king of the beasts because they can fight off fourteen lionesses. I also think the lionesses should still be called of the beasts because a lion has no predators except for poachers and hunters.

  16. – Explain what is happening in the video.
    There is an animal and 14 lions and 3 of the lions were on the lions bake and the elephant was going in the water and the lions where being a pain and the elephant was running around like a hooligan. I think that the lions need to stop being king because animals can get really hurt.
    – Describe why the lions attacked this elephant.
    I think the lions attract them so the elephants can’t go into their territories and then they just want to fight and I think that it is not good for them at all because the animals can get hurt.
    – Explain the feelings that the two types of animals would have had during the altercation.
    I think that the two animals would feel sad because then they would be dead and I think that their family would like that.
    – Do you believe lions should still be called the ‘King of Beasts’? Explain your answer.
    I don’t think so because then if they do then people and animals would not be able to rule the world because now the lions a ruling the world.

  17. 
    In the video there were 1 elephant and 14 lionesses and the lionesses were attacking the elephant I’m guessing for food and the elephant went in the water and then came running back at the lionesses to try scare them away and it worked so it was pretty shocking that 14 lionesses got scared. I thought the lionesses were afraid in water but I guess they don’t because I thought if the elephant went in the water the lionesses wont but they did.

    The lionesses attacked the elephant for their pack and then they can relax and have something nice to eat for themselves and there might be some animals what they eat could be almost all gone. They might have gone for an elephant because it is a bigger animal and they might have much more lionesses, lions and cubs.

    No because there are more different types of animals which are stronger then lions/lionesses.
