The only mammals that can’t jump are Elephants
mammals that can’t jump are Elephants Just so you know, even though adult elephants indeed cannot jump, they are not the only mammals that can’t! Of course, if by jumping we mean that state in which there are no feet on the ground at the same time after propelling oneself from a position of stillness that is. Contrary to this belief, there is this particular other mammal called “sloth” that can’t do it either, which is fine since it fits into its lazy lifestyle anyway. We also have the hippopotamuses and rhinoceroses, that just like the others, can’t jump either. The difference between these last two mammals and the elephants is that the latest are able to have all four feet off the ground when they are running.
