The Elephant page has had a lot of vandalism recently, so I will need suitable proof of this fact before I will add it to the page. If you cannot provide me with a link, then it will not be added. When the page is unprotected, please do not add it yourself without prior proof as it will probably be removed. Thanks. Billz (Talk) 21:22, 1 August 2006 (UTC)

This is misinformation, and originated on the Stephen Colbert show. This is the reason why I have semi-protected the page, and on en: several dozen pages have had to be protected for the same reason. Blockinblox 00:28, 2 August 2006 (UTC)

If anyone is interested, clips of the segment in question are here and here (Flash). Freshstart 03:09, 2 August 2006 (UTC)

Grass is wears down teeth[change source]

I do not believe this is proper English "Grass is wears down teeth", the is does not belong there. Grass is not wears, but grass wears down teeth.

   this section doent have enough facts-ı need more. simple english does :)not mean shorter facts-it's purpose is easier words.

Wings?[change source]

"At birth, an elephant calf may sprout wings,"

I don't believe this is correct. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.109.27.10 (talkcontribs)

Thanks for pointing this out. I have restored the original content. This vandalism was somehow left uncaught for 2 months! :O --George (Talk · Contribs · CentralAuth · Log) 18:07, 14 July 2017 (UTC)
