Although you may be familiar with the song “Monster Mash,” you probably haven’t thought of it in just this way. Over 1,200 pounds of pumpkins were trampled underfoot and devoured by an elephant family! The annual “Squishing of the Squash” took place once again, much to the delight of the elephants, thanks to growers Larry Nelson and Jim Paino. The pumpkin is smashed under the weight of the elephant with just one step.
The elephants then use their trunks to remove the seeds from the pumpkins. They consume the pumpkins’ interiors after ᴅᴇsᴛʀᴏʏing them. Every time a pumpkin is smashed, a mob of people applauds. When the footage starts, there are four enormous pumpkins in the yard with them. By the time it’s over, they’re all gone. ᴅᴀᴍᴀɢᴇ is done by two elephants, and they leave no pumpkin standing!
The largest living land animal is an elephant. These enormous creatures come in three different species: the Asian elephant, the African forest elephant, and the African bush elephant. Their trunk serves as a means of respiration, hydration, grabbing, and in this instance, pumpkin consumption. They are capable of weighing between 6,000 and 13,000 pounds. Even when they are having fun ᴅᴇsᴛʀᴏʏing pumpkins, they are still gorgeous creatures.
These elephants appear pleased to merely squish the pumpkin and eat their orange meal, in contrast to many humans who enjoy carving pumpkins into Jack-O-Lanterns. When these ferocious creatures easily crushed pumpkins, the crowd was treated to a great trick.
Let’s take a look at this moment:
