Feb. 23 (UPI) -- A visitor to a wildlife preserve in Zimbabwe captured video of a buffalo herd's most unusual member -- an elephant that has been living with the animals for nearly 50 years.

Sipke Vink posted a video to YouTube showing the elephant he saw living with a herd of buffalo at Zimbabwe's Imire Rhino and Wildlife Conservation.


The video, recorded Tuesday, shows the elephant standing in the middle of the buffalo herd as the animals graze.

Vink said park rangers told him the elephant has been living with the buffalo herd for about 46 years, since it was a baby.
