They are the biggest stars of the greatest show on earth and they have just arrived in town.

They are the elephants of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus. They'll be headlining five shows this weekend at the American Bank Center.

On Tuesday, the elephants and tigers arrived, the rest of the animals and crew are on the way.

While in town, most of the animals will be kept outside, so we wanted to know, how do the handlers keep the cool. The answer? Lots of fans and lots of water.
