Want to see how a bear turned the tables on a tiger? Well an incredible clip is taking twitter by storm.
The clip was filmed three years ago at Rajasthan’s Ranthambore National Park. An Indian Forest Service officer Susanta Nanda however has just posted it.
Bear takes the prank seriously.

The video showed a tiger moving stealthily towards a sloth bear. The bear was likely busy searching for food. However, the tiger seems to be bent on throwing the bear’s plans off the chart. Sneaking up on the bear, it startled the animal with its paws.
Surprisingly enough, the bear turned the tables on the apex predator and chased the tiger with all its might. Limited by speed, it failed to pin the tiger down on the ground but did send it scurrying off, much to the amusement of viewers.
The tiger immediately ran away possibly knowing that sloth bears have exceptionally long claws for their body size and they use it to fight off predators.
