Elephants

Endangered and needing your help!

Physical Description

An elephant is the largest land living mammal.


The elephant has a trunk with two tusks on either side of the trunk. An elephant's trunk can grow to be about 2 meters long and weigh up to 140 kg. The elephant's trunk is able to sense the size, shape, and temperature of an object. An elephant uses it trunk to lift food and suck up water to pour into its mouth.


Elephants have large, think ears. Their ears are made up of a complex network of blood vessels which help regulate their temperature. Blood is circulated through their ears to cool them down in hot climates.
