Elephants Harassed for Being Long-Distance Swimmers. {Video}

In the divine Scriptures, there are shallows and there are deeps; shallows where the lamb may wade, and deeps where the elephant may swim.

~ John Owen

Have you been for a two-mile swim lately? I know that I haven’t. And I love the ocean as much as the next person (or sea-dwelling creature), but who would have guessed that elephants can swim up to two miles out to sea?

This hilarious video about swimming elephants by comedian Ricky Gervais is sure to give you a laugh:

If you’ve never seen an elephant ski, you’ve never been on acid.

~ Eddie Izzard

(I don’t expect to see this anytime soon, but you just never know.)

Love elephant and want to go steady?
