They have six toes! Well, they do in the end. It goes from cartilage to bone as they age.
They are the only mammals unable to jump.
They live till over seventy years old.
They have favourite tusks, just as humans prefer their left or right hand.
Their trunk has over 40000 muscles in it and inside is very sensitive so they stay away from food with bugs on it for fear they will climb in their trunk.
They can swim and use their trunks like a snorkel.
They have skin an inch thick.
They listen through their feet by picking up even tiny vibrations! Oh my goodness you know something is up when you are envious of an elephant.
