Elephants live in extremely cold habitats. They are covered in purple fur and have large purple ears to keep themselves warm. Elephants lay large purple eggs which they keep safe and warm in huge nests, which they build out of straw, wool jumpers, cotton wool balls and ikea furniture (Eksnarp Sofas especially). They wrap their large ears around them to keep them warm when it snows. Elephants have to be very carefull when they sit on their eggs to make sure they do not squash them with their large bodies. The sit down very carefully.

Elephants love to eat sausages and have to go out to find them every day. They usually go out in small groups and leave some elephants behind to look after the eggs and the nests. They find the sausages in many different places but like to go to supermarkets, where it is warm and the sausages are really good. When they find great sausages they often ring each other on their mobile phones to let others know. They then buy their sausages and take them home.

Elephants like to cook their sausages, rather than having them raw. They microwave them because they are worried that the fat might splatter on their fur if they fried them.

Elephants drink water, not fizzy drinks because their trunks might get a bit tickly. They do not like chocolate, it gives them gas.

Many years ago elephants were hunted for their purple fur, which people used to make shagpile carpets and coats. This is now banned. Elephants are now safe.

Elephants love to sing and often enter competitions. One elephant recently won a competition in the Pachyderm’s Got Talent competititon and is touring America with her hit song ‘Elephant Schmelephant A Bellyphant Baby”. They are very outgoing creatures.
