Owners of a Florida tourist attraction called De Leon Springs introduced Queenie to water-skiing in the 1950s and she actually didn’t mind it! She would put her trunk in the water and get a big scoop of water and spray it all over the place. Queenie was billed as “The World’s Only Water Skiing Elephant” after she replaced the world’s first water skiing elephant, Sunshine Sally.
