I'm having a hard time finding any pictures of a wild elephant in mud much
deeper than its ankles.
Even those being forced to walk through mud by humans don't seem to be any
deeper in the mud
than their knees (if even that deep).
A YouTube search for "elephant stuck in mud" seems to yeild plenty of results:
The last one is interesting, as the rest of the herd seems to be giving the mud
a wide berth while
trying to help the mired individual.
