Elephants. What is something… that all elephants have?
That’s right, it’s a Trunk. But what exactly, is an Elephant’s Trunk?
It’s a very long nose.
So it’s great for smelling, just like your nose.
But it’s many other things for an Elephant.
It’s a Trumpet. or a Snorkel Or even… a straw for drinking.
It’s an arm to hug other elephants.
Or a supporting hand, in case someone gets stuck in the mud.
Some Baby elephants even suck their trunks like a thumb.
So what else makes Elephants special? They are very big! The largest animal on land in fact. If an Elephant stood next to you, it would be roughly 3 times taller. So they need to eat lots of vegetation every day. And drink lots of water. More than 200 litres to be exact.
They also have large thin ears that they use to cool themselves down. And big tusks, to help dig for water.
Or use to scrape bark from trees. That’s yummy food for an Elephant.
Elephants are very friendly to each other too. The females and young stick together in a big family herd.
In the wild, Elephants live for a really long time, but they always have wrinkles! Wouldn’t it be great to see Elephants in the wild?!!
