What are high speed elephants?



  1. 0 Votes

    High-speed elephants are elephants that are walking and trotting at the same time. Elephants are too large to generate the force necessary to explode off of the ground as other animals do when they are running; therefore, in order to move more expeditiously, an elephant will walk with its front legs and trot with its back legs.  This change in locomotion is not always discernible, but was shown to exist — and be quite an efficient form of transportation — by researchers who measured the impact of footprints left by elephants as well as the frequency of their steps.
