    you’re right @furry_cat123 elephants can’t actually jump since an average elephant weighs about 8,000 pounds but some can weigh up to 16,000 lbs. According to Tony Barthel, curator of Elephant Trails and the Cheetah Conservation Station, “If you were to look at an elephant’s skeleton, you’ll see that they’re standing on their tippy toes. “All the bones are pointed straight down.” This skeletal design supports the weight but does not allow for an upwards spring from the feet which is needed for jumping.

    However, I have a theory about ” If an elephant would cause an earthquake if they do a jump.” My answer is yes. (maybe) Since elephants are huge animals with massive weights; if they ever jumped they won’t jump very high because of their weight, the gravitational pull will be greater; possibly causing the animal crashing down. It comes back to how much the elephant weighs that will be how much of impact (gravity) the creature falls down with. NB: It’s not scientific, it just what I think.

    Another fact about elephants; they can’t jump. If an elephant jumped, would it cause an earthquake?
