Pachyderm Facts:

Just like humans the Carson and Barnes Circus elephants take daily showers.  Although; unlike most of us, they really get the royal treatment.  They get to lay down and get scrubbed cleaned by their loved handlers.  It takes approximately 500 gallons of water and 2 gallons of soap just to give one elephant their daily bath.  The majestic pachyderms are bathed with a special soap that is brought in from Missouri that is especially formulated for their skin.  Pressured water is used to help them achieve a spa like cleaning!  This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see an elephant bath.
