Pachyderm Facts
Just like humans the Carson & Barnes Circus elephants take daily showers, although unlike most of us they really get the royal treatment. They get to lie down and get scrubbed cleaned by their loved handlers. It takes approximately 500 gallons of water and a gallon of special soap just to give one elephant their daily bath. The majestic pachyderms are bathed with a soap that helps their naturally tough skin. Pressured water is used to help them achieve a spa like cleansing! This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see an elephant’s bath!!!
