We know the elephant is having trouble because: 1) Horton was making facial expressions to show that he was having trouble. 2) At times, Horton would yelp or change his voice to show he was scared or nervous. 3) Horton was talking to himself to reassure that the bridge was made keeping elephants in mind. He said: “Obviously they take into account that elephants will be crossing here.” 4) Horton says words that show the bridge would probably fall down – like he says “precarious.” 5) He was hesitating!
