QUEER TALES FROM
ANIMAL KINGDOM
The elephant has three sets of
teeth, four in each jaw, but only eight
of the teeth are in action at one time.
The other two sets are reserved, only
coining into use when the first ones
are worn out.
The elephant's trunk, it is asserted
by some scientists, is the most won
derful organ in all nature. Cuvier
estimated that it contained 40,000
muscles; and so great is its mechan
ism that it can pick up almost any-
thing from a toothpick to a good
sized log.
The elephant is the largest of all
extant land animals, and is said' to
be second only to the dog in intelli
gence; but the dog comes from a
thousand generations of domesti
cated stock. So the elephant de
serves a great deal of credit for
quickness in surpassing almost any
other animal.
The ivory of the elephant's tusks
is the most resilient substance
known. An ivory ball will rebound
higher than a solid rubber one; that
is why the best billiard balls are
made of this substance, and to obtain
it the elephant is ruthlessly hunted
and slain.
