Well that sure ruins the idea that the elephant had over-sized ears, enabling him to fly off, and lead the Carpathia to the lifeboats.No, there weren't any elephants on board.
Actually, Dave, that same troupe of elephants was frequently heard, marching on the Decks of Titanic around Dawn, every morning. Passengers noted the chants of "Hup-2-3-4!! Keep It Up 2-3-4....", though they could not remember if their leader was "Colonel Hauthie" or "Colonel Gracie" (he just claimed to be swimming and playing racquetball with Clinch Smith).According to at least two websites, 47 elephants and dancing bears survived the sinking and were later employed in New York. So there!
