Turns out even animals are just like us humans when it comes to food cravings. We have often seen videos of animals which are showing their foodie traits. And this time, an elephant has gone viral for the same reason. Recently, a video showed how a hungry elephant was reaching out to pluck jackfruit from a tree. The video resonated with many and won hearts on the internet.
