Why nature has given broader feet to elephants???

PLs answer in easy language
Question asked by: vinayreem1

Asked on: 07 Jun 2010

Their broad feet helps the elephants to increase their area of contact with the ground thus reducing the pressure exerted as increase in area leads to decrease in pressure. This helps them to carry their huge body weight effectively.
