If you thought animals only evolve to survive in the wild, think again. With forests depleting, which is the home of wild animals, they have been adapting to live close to rural and urban areas. 

As was seen in Gujarat where lions from the Gir forests even walked across the beaches while trying to find new territories, the following video is not a huge surprise. However, it has gone viral with netizens sharing with awe.

The video shows a tiger crossing the national highway at Pench district in Nagpur. As seen in the video, the tiger stays still at first and then moves silently towards the road, walks stealthily on the footpath and quickly walks across the highway and then jumps over the crash barrier.

The commuters were lucky enough to capture the entire video. Watch the viral video above.

The video was shared by IFS officer Parveen Kaswan on Twitter. He also shared the location from where the video was taken saying it was from Pench in Nagpur.

Earlier, a video of a matriarch elephant helping her family cross the road had gone viral. In the video which was shared widely on Whatsapp, Facebook, and other social media platforms showed how intelligent elephants are and the extent to which they can go to protect their herd.

The video shows a matriarch elephant clearing the roads of motorists and cyclists in order to ensure her family can safely cross the narrow road. The elephant first chased away a cyclist who is on the road and then walked in the opposite direction. There are four-wheelers at a distance which seemed to have halted owing to the elephant's presence. Soon after turning in the opposite direction it turned a little towards the side which is covered with foliage. Seconds later, its herd walked onto the road from the foliage and followed the matriarch across it.
