why are the legs of elephant very thick

Asked by AJAY SARASWAT | 13th Oct, 2013, 07:03: PM

Expert Answer:

Elephants have huge mass. Thus, in order to support their weight the legs should be thick and strong.
 
If the legs are thin or weak, then their weight would not be supported and they would never be able to walk.
