This amazing mechanic design [by Andrew Chase] was made out of transmission parts, electrical conduits, plumbing pipes and 20 gauge cold rolled steel. It is 36″ X 36″ X 18″ and weights about 85 lbs. All the joints move and lock in place, turning a gear on the elephant’s side winds a cable around a shaft which raises and lowers the trunk and the ears move back and forth and can fan out (to dissipate heat).
