Are elephants capable of jumping?
The Internet has no clear answer: Some say yes, some say no.

Elephants are one of the few animals that can't jump. Not even a little bit. They don't like to have more than 1 foot off the ground.

an elephant cannot jump or even run in the accepted sense since it must keep one foot on the ground at all times.
I say this because it is generally well known that African elephants can jump.
In fact the "Elephant Jumping Festival" will be held next month in Nairobi.
I need someone who can get to the bottom of this.
