An irritated elephant decided to pour cold water on a buffalo bull when he got a little too close for comfort.
The wild animal was relaxing next to a small pool of water in the Kruger National Park in South Africa with his family as the bull approached, much to the elephant’s annoyance.
In a gesture captured in front of the camera, the African elephant ejaculates the bull with water in its trunk to make it walk, but loses its target.

In order not to beat, the huge creature begins to enlarge the bull, which is clearly not disturbed by the elephant’s actions and continues to drink.
The incredible photographs were taken in the historic park, which opened in 1898 to protect South Africa’s wildlife.
According to the Kruger National Park website, 147 different species of mammals, 507 birds, 114 reptiles and 34 amphibians live in the area.
