Elephant Research Project
A Sample for Students
African elephants are herbivores, which means that they eat plants. An adult can eat up to 400 lbs. of grass, leaves, and roots per day! They use their long trunks to grasp food and gather water, and tusks help them to dig roots.
Life in the Herd
Traveling in a herd provides protection from predators and helps elephants to keep from being lost.
