They are the only animal with 4 knees, did you know that?

Well just in case you now know it's not true, feel free to bet against people who have heard this myth and you will get free pizza.
Like I got. Sweet. Thank you elephants, for having just two knees like every other animal ever.

No, it makes you right. four legs = four knees

Definition of knee in zoology. the corresponding joint or region in the hind leg of a quadruped; stifle.

That means there front legs aren't really legs, they aren't designed the same.

The bord population is highly divided on the ideal of knees. On the pro side. Mr. flamingo

I have nothing against people who can use pot and lead a productive life. It's these sanctimonius hippies that make me wish I was a riot cop in the 60's

So does the way a joint bends determines whether it's a knee or elbow?

all land vertebrates have 2 pairs of members, "arms" and "legs", the front legs always have an elbow that bends forward like us, and knees that bend backwards.

Yes, even mister flamingo and chickens. Did you ever see a chicken leg without the feathers?

No, the front legs just have longer bones from the shoulder to the elbow and smaller feet. They're still quadrupeds, but their hind legs have a different bone structure. Saying they aren't really legs because they're different is like saying a shirt isn't a shirt if it's not blue.

ok to clarify: I'm telling you most people didn't spend their youth reading books about animals so they have no frickin idea what animals are built what way and a common myth is that elephants are the only animals with 4 knees, which makes sense in people's minds because they picture the elephant's foot bending inwards like a knee but THEY ARE WRONG, elephants aren't freaky muta-mammals and so BET AGAINST EVERYONE YOU CAN that elephants have only 2 knees and REAP THE REWARDS.

The joints on the front legs of quadrupeds aren't called knees.
