On April 1st of 2018, the Kruger National Park in South Africa fooled millions by posting a Photoshopped image on twitter. The image portrays an elephant assisting a lioness by holding her cub with it’s trunk. This idea of prey and predator coming together to help one another touched the hearts of many. One twitter user made the comment:

“Unbelievable! Wow thanks for this amazing story. What a lesson for us humans?” [email protected]

While @LatestKruger on twitter admitted to this being an April Fools prank, the picture still shares an important message for mankind; Putting aside our differences and coming together to solve all inclusive issues.

The mystery of the image sparked an engaging conversation (involving scientific investigation and humor) between people from all around the world.

“An even more scientific approach, based on shadow geometry principles, is that shadows cast off from a single light source [sun, in this case] are always parallel. From the image below, the discrepancy in the shadow angles (98 and 114) are an evidence of editing @LatestKruger” – @gary_ngara
