Did You Know: Elephants are the Only Animals That Can’t Jump?

elephantElephants cannot jump.

It is physiologically impossible for them to do so, because of their weight.

Many asked how come they have seen them jump down off platforms, stand on their front legs, and do all kinds of other tricks at the circus, however  none of these are natural activities for elephants in the wild, and that they will step down from a platform, but will not jump.
