So how much does an adult elephant weigh? The average African elephant weighs approximately 4.6 tons which equals 9,200 lbs.!
Wow! That’s pretty heavy. I am thankful that we have no reason to actually pick up an elephant…but I did get your attention and a great visual
that you can easily hurt your lower back by not lifting properly. In fact, research has shown that lifting a 50 lb. weight without bending your
knees puts 500 lbs. of pressure on the lower back which can rupture a disc! For helpful tips “Lifting Safely” go to:
