a term used to describe an enormous task or group of jobs that need completing. The tasks must include physical exertion, thought and take a lot of effort, just like training an elephant.

Different coloured elephants can be used to describe the difficulty of a task along the colour spectrum; red/orange elephants are easiest, blue/purple elephants the most difficult
