Joe Hurry Creations’ Amazing Revelations

June 18, 2010

Todays amazing revelation:

Elephants are one of the few mammals that can’t jump.

And to quote a guy on Yahoo! Answers (because I found him very interesting):

There are several others listed including the okapi, guinea pig and raccoon who are also reported as not being able to jump.

In the same class as the elephant, both Hippopotamus and Rhinoceroses come closer to skipping than jumping. Like the elephant, their body mass is too great in relation to their mass.

In addition, all bats have weak legs and usually have trouble walking, let alone jumping.

It has been recorded that sloths move too slow to jump. Plus they seldom climb down out of their trees.

Giraffes are known to run, but apparently always have one “foot on the ground.” Due to their neck structure, it may not be possible for them to jump in the usual meaning of the word.

Due to their odd physical shapes and relatively slow speeds, echidna (spiny anteater), duck-billed platypus and koala might also be listed among the non-jumpers.

Finally, there are the non-land mammals most of which can come at least part way out of the water, but none have legs and by definition, can not jump. These would include whales, porpoises, dolphins, manatees and maybe even sea lions.
