Tweak the idiom ‘Elephant in a room’ a bit and there you go. Guests at a hotel in Sri Lanka were in for a shocker when a wild elephant was found taking a stroll through the hotel lobby.
Twitter user Upuli shared the video of the animal with the caption, “Woke up to a text from my mom about how a wild elephant went into a Sri Lankan hotel and gently wandered around while poking stuff with his trunk.”
