There is a discussion relating to which types of blemishes are considered noticeable that a slave would go free if the master caused it.  Arguments surround the cases of castrated testicles and the tongue.  Sources are brought from other areas of halacha where revealed blemishes are discussed.  The mishna discusses how larger and smaller animals are acquired.  The gemara raises a question according to a tanna who requires lifting the animal:  how can an elephant be acquired?
