Elephant Encounters Great White Shark in Sri Lanka (PHOTOS)

According to billschannel on YouTube, the photos featured in the slideshow above were taken by Judy Labrona while she was vacationing in Sri Lanka.

They appear to show an elephant greeting a very curious shark in the ocean. We’ve heard of an elephant shark, but we’ve never seen anything quite like this before. And we bet neither have you.

There are people who believe the footage is a total hoax (maybe because it looks like there are three different sharks in the images?), while others assume the amazing moment has to be real. It’s on the Internet so it has to be, right?

What do you think? Is it bogus or an incredibly fascinating wildlife encounter?
