Damn I definitely did not know that. I knew they loves bathing in it and playing in it but I had no idea they could swim like that. Coolness.

Would be pretty weird if one day you're in a public swimming pool somewhere and all of a sudden an elephant jumps in the water

And here as a human I can't dog paddle more than 3 feet without sinking like a stone. Thanks for making me feel like garbage, elephants!

I love elephants, they're so adorable! I've only seen them abroad since they are allowed in Finland due to the climate. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I never would have thought they were good swimmers. They are one of the most magnificent animals on the planet, I think!

I knew they liked water, didn't know they were good swimmers.

That's amazing! You'd think they'd sink since they're so heavy.
