Ruby is a baby elephant that replaces Stella at the mall. Ivan makes a promise to Stella to look out for Ruby. Ivan quickly begins to realize the life that Ruby has been thrown into. He begins using his art as a way to help save her.
"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).
From: I fucking love science Elephants don’t drink through their trunks, but they do use them to suck up water and bring it to their mouths. A fully grown elephant can hold an estimated 10 liters of water in their trunks to make drinking easier.
