Elephants vs humans in watermelon-eating contest

July 3, 2013

It was a defeat the members of the Southwestern College Jaguars football team may find tough to stomach. But try as they might, the players just couldn't eat more watermelons than the two Asian elephants they were battling.

Sure, football players are known for their immense appetites, but their bulging waistlines were no match for two voracious eaters named Becky and Rosie who out ate the athletes from the San Diego-area college on Friday.

The eight Jags gorged themselves heartily, and managed to eat eight watermelons in a 15-minute battle. But they were no match for the pachyderms who each consumed five for a grand total of 10 at the San Diego County Fair.

Becky and Rosie could have eaten even more melons, but their trainers decided to truncate the amount of fruit they were given so they'd have more to eat on the weekend.

The jumbo competition was part of an effort to raise $5,000 for the International Elephant Foundation, an organization that currently has 70 projects around the world designed to save the species from extinction.
