Reader photo of the day: Warthog faces off against elephant herd

Elephants vs. warthog

Color us fascinated by submitter Jeff Warner's photo, taken on a trip to South Africa's Kruger National Park.  According to Jeff, this plucky warthog, despite having no warthog backup, decided to challenge a herd of elephants in order to assert his rights to a water hole.

We were pulling for the little guy (who doesn't love an underdog?), but according to Jeff, things didn't quite go his way.  "The elephant kicked sand in the warthog's face," Jeff explains. The indignity!
