Part of the elephant’s foot? (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

heel

Here is my best explanation:

'foot' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'part of the elephant's' is the subsidiary indication.

'part of' indicates a hidden word.

'heel' is hidden within 'the elephants'.

This clue was last seen in Mirror

(Other definitions for heel that I've seen before include "Scoundrel - list - shoe part", "Keel over", "List - scoundrel", "Lean over; part of foot", "See 21", "See 1 down", "Come here, Rover!", "Part of shoe; bad person", "Achilles's weak spot" and "Back part of the foot".)
