(Bicyclist versus Elephant video) addendum from the book.
"What the video fails to capture is my high pitched schoolgirl screams of terror.
The oft-cited phenomenon of everything slowing down during a life-threatening situation didn't play out for me. I was a blur of thoughtless primal fear until I was well beyond the herd. Then I was conscious only that I was breathing, though in ragged gasps.
Later, the locals would tell me the elephant's behavior was a mock charge, that if the animal had really meant business it would have tucked in its trunk, so as not to damage the vital equipment, and would have led with its tusks. With not a little amusement, they reminded me that the hyenas that had trapped me inside a port-a-potty at camp the previous evening were a more formidable threat."
