Question. Do elephants stand after death? This is a topic that got my attention after I saw it pop up on an app that I have installed on my phone. At first I thought that it would probably be false, but it was still worth looking into as there could be just that slim chance that it could actually be true. So after hitting good old Google and conducting extensive searches online, I believe that I have finally come up with the answer to the question do elephants stand after death? The answer is, elephants do not stand after death.
As with all factoids that we discover from time to time, we wanted to ensure that we took our time to fully look into it before we included it as a fact or a myth. At one point we were ready to completely discount this fact as a myth, until we found the proof that it was actually true, and we nearly included this myth as a fact until we found out that it was nothing more than hearsay. So as you can see, it’s definitely worth investing the time before we say one way or the other if something is true or not. So what exactly is the basis for this misconception that elephants stand after death?
