The five ways in the video clip in which I knew the elephant was having trouble were: 1. The worried expression on his face: he looked as if he knew he wasn't going to make it across the bridge. 2. He was extremely high up: He looked down to find water, and knew he needed to get across. 3. He was too heavy for the bridge. 4. The bridge started to creak as he stepped on with his foot. 5. He started to talk to himself and make worried noises.
