I didn't think elephants could jump.

It's an interesting article - but if elephants can't physiologically jump because of their weight, wouldn't it be possible for a baby elephant to jump? I imagine not just the weight, but the proportions and physiology would be different and might allow jumping. Another question for Tom Silva, I suppose ...

Elephant ears can't move into the position that baby's ears are in. They look more like a basset hound's ears to me. Those ears are drawn in.

You're right - the more I look at it, the less real the baby looks.

real? not real? eh! It lifted my heart and made me smile

All pictures of baby elephants are great. Every one of them makes me smile.

I've seen a baby rhino frolic like a lamb, bouncing about (definitely not possible for adult rhinos), and also a baby womat bounce about (ditto), so I find it quite plausible that a baby elephant could.
