are elephants really afraid of a rat, mouse someone told me they were

Yep ... but it's because of their poor eyesight ... anything small and fast, around their feet, frightens them. (saw it on Mythbusters)

They are indeed. It's because they don't like things that move around their feet, that they cannot see due to their bad eyesight.

Mouses can be nuisance to elephants if they can get into elephants ears. The myth of elephants afraid mouses is very plausible.
