It was a wondrous sight to see adult elephant fully stretched out on the ground fast asleep. I had seen baby elephants do this, but not the larger elephants and had only formerly seen them resting standing up, using their trunks to lean on to take pressure off their legs. My guide explained they only totally relax fully on the ground, for brief periods because their body weight puts too much pressure on their internal organs.
