klod,
Why does the headpiece have a "B" in the middle of it?

I agree its strange with the B, if this is Rolf Knies elephant. On the other hand, the name of the Knie elephant making the thightrope was Baby, can it be her initial?

Dan,
That is a possibility, but unusual. Normally if there is only a single elephant on the show.
