    New Delhi (Sputnik): Two sweet-tooth elephant almost hijacked a truck stacked with sugarcane and looted it to satiate their huge appetite. An adult elephant can eat between 200-600 pounds (90-270 kg) of food per day.

    Two elephants were being transported on a truck when a sugarcane-loaded vehicle came closer, providing the perfect meal-on-the-go for the hungry duo.

    In the video, the pachyderms can be seen feasting on sugarcanes as other vehicles waited with patience to let them gobble up the jumbo-sized junk food.

    ​Indian elephants are one of the three subspecies of endangered Asian elephants. India is home to about 60 percent of the total population of elephants in the world, according to a report released in November, 2019.
