Quiz Description

This is not so much a quiz about elephants as it is a general knowledge quiz in which each question is at least tangentially related to something involving a pachyderm. Perhaps it should really be called "Elephants in the Popular Imagination," but I did want to have as many categories represented as I could. I hope you have fun! They say an elephant never forgets. How much can you remember, or guess? "If elephants didn't exist, you couldn't invent one. They belong to a small group of living things so unlikely they challenge credulity and common sense." ~ Lyall Watson
