Some zookeepers in China could be setting a record for the world's biggest pedicure. It's being given to the elephant at the Hongshan Forest Zoo in Eastern China.

Elephant's toenails wear down quickly in the wild but in the zoo, they grow too long and could become infected. The workers use a tag-team technique. One distracts the elephant with apples while the other cleans and files the nails.

In case you're wondering, the nail file is almost two-feet long.
