How many teats does an elephant have and what makes mammals have more than two apart from numbers of off spring. I tried to google this but just got lots of pictures of ladies with enormous boobs. Is it also true that elephant tits are between their front legs?

Hmm I didn`t get a single top ranker with over pneumatic ladies.
Mammal is good prefix word to avoid that!

Elephants have only two teats and they are between the front legs.

As to the others:

Happy googling

Thanks Edster. I guess the words I entered into google were different to yours. Sometimes it is so hard to find the right words to enter to get what you want. My coffee club have been discussing all things elephant recently so I will be able to fill in the gaps in our nelly knowledge now.

The answer to your next elephant question is "long enough to touch the ground"

Legs, more likely.
