Elephant Expertly Balances Logs at Basel Zoo

An elephant at Zoo Basel in Switzerland recently impressed visitors when it managed to balance a log on top of a severed tree trunk.

Aigle resident Julien Clapasson captured footage of an African elephant performing the trick during a visit to the non-profit facility.

The video was recorded in the zoo’s Tembea elephant enclosure which opened to the public in March 2017. Credit: Julien Clapasson via Storyful
