lucky if you're an antelope being stalked by a lion, perhaps. (in which case you move closer to the elephant)

Speaking of which, did you ever see that video of a gang of lions teaming up to take down a elephant? Pretty sick stuff.

jesus. lions being able to take down a full-grown female elephant just seems insane.

i think there are two things making this possible- 1) elephants are herbivores and have a herbivore's mindset, meaning their first response if not protecting a baby is to run from such odds; 2) despite elephants being the toughest, strongest creatures on land, they are apparently poor fighters. for example, an elephant trunk is immensely strong and could probably break small boulders and small trees in half, but it didn't seem to occur to that elephant to use it in it's defense. similarly, elephant legs probably have a piston-like strength on the order of factory machinery which could be a devastating weapon if used correctly.

if i was that elephant and saw that pack coming up on me and no other elephants to help, i would have feinted as if i was going to retreat until they started charging, and then as quick as i could, turn and plow through them like a number 15 ball through a bunch of bowling pins, reaching with my trunk to try to catch any of them i could while my legs hopefully crushed or maimed some lions underfoot who were too densely packed to get out of the way in time. a couple charges like that would settle the argument quickly, i would think.

then again, it can be virtually impossible to attack when you're a plant-eater whose every instinct is screaming at you to run away. plus, elephants are very unathletic and borderline clumsy and could easily trip while making such a charge... a trip that would probably be final.
