Wild Elephant Spotted Enjoying A Dip At A Lake In Terengganu
Now, a wild elephant has appeared to take a swim at a lake in Terengganu.
A four-minute video of the incident was shared by Mohd Suwardi Muhammad Azmi, who was on a fishing trip when he saw the large creature casually swimming in Tasik Kenyir, Terengganu.
His friend Mohd Sukrillah took the video, which has since received over 66,000 views and 1,000 Facebook shares.
The elephant can be seen using its trunk to breathe above the waters
This is the fourth time he has seen elephants in those waters
Since he started fishing activities back in 2004, Mohd Suwardi told Bernama that he has spotted several elephants taking dips in the lake.
"I did not expect the video to receive so much attention. Maybe it's because many do not know that elephants can swim," he shared with the news portal.
However, he was glad that he spotted the elephant at the lake because it meant that the mammal still viewed it as a habitat.
