Elephants ARE scared of mice...  
I had to share this after watching it on Mythbusters!

I've seen that episode!!! The only thing that bothers me about it... is that they used a white mouse. So the elephant could technically be scared of it only because it's never seen a white mouse before.

White mice a lab animals... they wouldn't be a regular sight in the wild for an elephant. They should have used a brown or gray one. But oh well. It still blows my mind that the elephant is scared of it in general. xD

You seriously have a point there. You should write them and tell them. Maybe they will redo the myth or try it with another mouse.

It is weird the reaction the elephant had.

Hey it is short circuit.

LOL that is hilarious! I think they are afraid of small animals, I once saw an elephant panic over a squirrel on Americans funniest home videos :)

It is weird that something like an elephant would be scared of a small animal like that but I bet it has something to do with them being small and hard to see and anticipate.

But you know... I don't like mice either but I love squirrels.
