This is the astonishing moment a wild elephant wandered into a man’s home in eastern Thailand.
The fully-grown male jumbo emerged from the forest before walking over to the wooden property in Rayong province on January 20.
Astonished resident Ning stood on his staircase and stayed calm while being careful not to startle to the bull. He recorded the elephant as it looked around the ground floor of his home, sniffing through the boxes for signs of food.
It spent a few minutes investigating the home before walking away back towards the jungle.
Ning said: ‘This elephant had been here a few times before. He’s known for visiting homes near the forest. Thankfully he’s never aggressive, so I feel very lucky that he visits my home.’
