The Elephants are of good omen if saddled, or bad omen if not saddled.
– The Babylonian Talmud, Berakoth 57a
All kinds of beasts are a good sign in a dream, except the Elephant, the Monkey and Ape. But a has not the Master said: ‘If one sees an Elephant in a dream, a miracle will happen for him’? There is no contradiction in this, for if the Elephant is saddled, it is a good omen, and a bad omen if it is not saddled.
– The Babylonian Talmud, Berakoth 57b
