Customer follows the elephant to record the incident.

Although elephants are not a rare sight in Sri Lanka, spotting one casually strolling across a hotel lobby definitely is. In one such incident netizens are amazed at an elephant's calm demeanour as it is filmed carefully moving around a hotel in Sri Lanka.

The video posted by Twitter user Upuli, shows the elephant gracefully moving about the Jetwing Yala hotel lobby while occasionally stopping to investigate certain items with its trunk. A lamp falls down on the floor during the exploration, and the elephant tries to put it back in its place with its trunk but walks away when it cannot. 

The Twitter user captioned the video: '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'. The video has since garnered over 6.3 million views as of Tuesday morning, and attracted interesting comments from Twitter users

One Twitter user commented: 'I like how he wanders over to the window and stands there, seeming to be marveling at the view.'
