On Monday, an elephant was pictured trying to enter a tiny forest office in the Eravikulam National Park located in the south Indian state of Kerala.
The picture shared by Parveen Kaswan, an officer in the Indian Forest Services, has now gone viral on Twitter. It shows the fully-grown jumbo peeking inside the office.

India’s locked down citizens, who are looking for ways to keep themselves busy at home, are now guessing hilarious reasons why the huge mammal decided to check-up on humans. They have labeled the picture “super cute”.

As a precautionary measure against the further spread of the novel pandemic Coronavirus, India has been under a nationwide lockdown since 25 March. The lockdown was initially slated to be lifted on 14 April, however in light of the growing number of cases, it has been extended until 3 May.
Meanwhile, several rare animals have been sighted in different parts of the country. The deserted roads and the eerie noiselessness seems to have made the animals restless and anxious.
From herds of deer to wild boars, flamingos and bears – animals have been snapped all over India.
