The food chain is a well defined pyramid that usually works exactly as it should.

But sometimes, even the laws of nature can be broken.

Jesse Nash, a safari goer on tour of the Chinzombo Safari Camp in Zambia witnessed one brave elephant fight off fourteen hungry lions.

Her size and strength prevailed. The lionesses set on the elephant as it made its way to the water but he swated them aside almost without effort.

They continued to press, hoping for a break in her defences.

A few persistent lionesses followed it into the water but just like on land, they were no match for it in the water either.

The lionesses just didn't know when to quit and the elephant finally goes on the offensive forcing the pack to scatter in all directions.

The highly impressed safari tour group said the elephant survived the encounter and earned the nickname Hercules for its gargantuan efforts.
