To support the animal's weight, an elephant's limbs are positioned more vertically under the body than in most other mammals. Both the front and hind limbs can support an elephant's weight, although 60% is borne by the front. Since the limb bones are placed on top of each other and under the body, an elephant can stand still for long periods of time without using much energy.

The Black and Rufous Elephant Shrew (Rhynchocyon petersi), also known as the black and rufous sengi, is one of 17 species of elephant shrew found only in Africa. Like other members of the genus Rhynchocyon, it is a relatively large species, with adults averaging about 28 cm (11 in) in length and 450-700 g (1.0-1.5 lb) in weight. It is native to Kenya and Tanzania. It eats insects (beetles, termites, ants) and spiders, supplementing this with fruits and seeds.
