Pictured: Holidaymakers had a close call when a curious elephant poked its head into their safari jeep to look for food and nearly tipped the vehicle over.
Dramatic photos show the enormous Asian elephant thrust its trunk and tusks through the window of the jeep, getting them caught as the panicked driver tries to speed away.
The truck comes close to toppling over as one fearful passenger even hangs from its side in a bid to avoid the upset animal.
Wildlife photographer Sergey Savvi captured the startling encounter while on safari in Sri Lanka's Yala National Park with his wife Julia. SEE OUR COPY FOR MORE DETAILS.
