Once upon a time up to hundreds of years ago elephant had very long tails as same as the size of their trunk. Now read how did they get a short tail.......
ON that time elephants used to eat only lions. They used to hunt them with the help of 1 trick. The trick was that: 3 elephant used to surround the lion, one elephant with the help of its trunk used to push the lion so that it may lie down on the floor. Then the other elephant with the help of its tail used to close its mouth. Then the other elephant put's it's leg on the chest of the lion so that his breath stops and then when it died the elephant enjoyed their dinner.
This was happening for a long time and there became a shortage of lions. By seeing this lions decided to have a meeting in the meeting they decided that whenever the elephant close their mouth with their tail they should bite their tail so that the elephants run away with a tiny tail and they get a freedom.
Then the other day when the elephants close the mouth of the lion by their tail the lions bit their tail and the elephants ran away and lions had freedom. Many days passed and the lions were using the same trick and after few days each and every elephant in the jungle was left with a tiny tail and then when their kids were born they were also having a small tail and from that day till now the elephants are having small tails.
And this is the reason why elephants got small tails.......... so saaaaaaaaad!!!!!
