This is the moment an elephant emerged from the jungle after smelling the food being cooked at a barbecue restaurant in Thailand.
The hungry jumbo came out of nearby trees and walked over to the Khun Dan Pork Pan Buffet in Nakhon Nayok province on January 27.
Confused customers waiting for their orders immediately stood up and left their tables upon seeing the animal approach the eatery.
However, the shy jumbo went straight to the back of the restaurant like it was hiding in the dark away from the people.
One of the customers said: ‘The elephant was calm and did not cause any trouble. It was big so we were startled. The restaurant owner gave it some fruits and it left after eating.’
