"Real life Dumbo" - more like photoshopped Dumbo. The ears have been enlarged and twisted around (you can see how they really attach on the big elephants), and it's been lifted off the ground. In real life, elephants can't jump (and certainly not fly).
I don't like wild animals in any form of captivity, but all nations are different with their own needs, life styles n solutions . Elephants are highly intelligent, social n bond very strongly. I'ld like to be an elephant , 'xcept for the weight thing
