DUMBO ALERT! Words fail me when you find photos like this. Real? Not real? Who cares. Amazingly QTE. As seen on We Heart Elephants FB, and sent in by Terrie J.



  1. Not real. Did you know that elephants are the only land mammal that cannot get all four feet off the ground at one time?

  2. Animallover says:

    Maybe not real but super cute!

  3. GD, I have the same problem!

    So adorable. Loves me some heffalumps.

  4. Emmberrann says:

    *Sings* “I b’leeve I kin flyyyyy!”

  5. @GD .. Not true .. I can’t either .. *snickers*

  6. “Now I’ve done seen about everything . . .when I see an elephant fly”! Thanks for the Dumbo reference, even if the photo isn’t real!

    GD. So scientific….when pigs fly!

  8. Reminds me of a poem from my childhood:
    Birdie, Birdie in the sky,
    Why’d you do that in my eye?
    Golly gee, don’t you cry.
    Just be glad elephants don’t fly!

  9. Of course this is real. I saw a documentary once about a baby elephant with huge ears that learned to fly. And he had a cute little mouse friend. At least I think it was a documentary, but in hindsight, it may have been a cartoon. Oh well, I choose to believe.

  10. And he’s not even holding a feather!

  11. we want to believe it is real 😀

  12. From “[…] Most think it is physiologically impossible for a mature elephant to jump, although baby elephants have been known to do so, if provoked.”

  13. januaryfarmer, I am not sure if you are being rude or making a joke….

  14. It’s an Eli-copter!
