Madhuri, an Indian elephant living in India's Corbett National Park, has been photographed swinging lizards around by their tails.

He picks them up in his trunk and swings them up, down and sideways. The lizards are a little dizzy when they are placed back on the ground but visitors to the park said it's an awesome scene.

One visitor, Ivan. R. Don said, "It's a bloody good laugh as the lizards wobble about like little drunken reptiles. I come here every Saturday just to see this. It's a 12 hour flight from where I live, but worth every penny."

Apparently, the lizards line up for their 'ride'. Some lizards wait over 2 hours for their turn but said it's worth the wait. They've never experienced anything like this before in their lives.

Park officials are training two other elephants to do the same thing as Madhuri so that the lines of lizards will be shorter.

Officials are also attempting to get Madhuri to give the snakes in the Park a similar thrill, but so far, he's not shown an interest.

"It may have something to do with his first-born calf having been eaten by a snake 28 years ago. Elephants never forget," said Park Official Mahatt Singh Sforyoo.

More stories from India's Corbett Park will follow.

Morrisons have Indian Frozen Entrees on sale.
They were accidentally defrosted when some idiot pulled out the freezer plug thinking she was saving electricity, so must be eaten and straight away (the Indian Frozen Entrees that is, NOT the idiot who pulled out the plug. She got fired but has hired a lawyer to see if she has a case
for 'unfair dismissal'.)

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
