An interesting discussion point about whether aquatic mammals can 'jump'. Dolphins, orcas and humpbacks can completely leave contact with the water, which might be considered jumping. but I'm sure not all whales can do this.
"Almost all" is a strong qualifier. When there are at least 150 other species of mammals that cannot jump which come to mind, I think it's more than fair to deem the qualifier as misleading.
Even if this were to be qualified with the argument that it's a myth that elephants are the only mammal unable to jump, there are other more well-known myths about elephants, for example, their inability to ever forget.
I'd recommend rewording the clue along the lines of "Elephants are unable to do this because their leg bones all point downward." The current clue is both misleading and also vague.
But please accept Clay for mud
