How Do Elephants Walk

By wochit 13 October 2016

Scientists at the University of Queensland discovered that elephants have a unique way of walking. They taught five elephants to walk on pressure-sensing platforms so that they could see exactly how they walk. According to their findings, elephants place most of their weight on their front feet particularly on their outside toes. A funnier way of saying that is elephants walk on their tiptoes. This why several captive elephant have foot issues, because the flooring in their pins are hard, unforgiving surfaces.
