Well, he would if he were a real elephant. But then again, if he were a real elephant, he wouldn't be able to sleep on a pile of yarn because he's be too big!
Not only that, but his trunk and tail would get all tangled up with the yarn and he'd trip, falling on his trainer and squishing nasty bits on the lovely yarn! Elephantes love yarn . . . it's just hard for them to hold the needles at the right angle.
Truly love Mr. Elephante, wish he'd visit me for a spell.
