“I've been poling down the river, found Jumbo here. Amiable little fella, ain't he?”
   — Wally

"Jumbo" was a small elephant-like creature from the Earth Happy Landings was located on.

Apparantly, Jumbo's species came up from "the plains".[1]


Jumbo was the size of an ox, with wiry brown hair.[1]

The Long Earth

He was found and named by Wally, a resident of Happy Landings, who rode him back to the township.[1]
