The legend is that a mouse can freak out elephants, but the truth is that their worst enemy is much smaller: ants. Elephants are scared of ants. That's what Jacob Goheen and Todd Palmer have discovered in Africa's sub-Saharian savannah.

This is cooool - just goes to shows that size is not always everything!

This also proves that both the Great and the Tiny in the animal kingdom can think, feel and even..... plot defense strategies!1

Thanks Simone
