Limbs and their Functions
Changes in appearance
Size
-males weigh between 2.25 and 5.5 tons with females weighing slightly less
-the shoulder height is between 2 and 3.5 meters
-body to tail is about between 9 and 11 meters
-all of them are smaller than african elephants though
Bibliography
-birth maturity= baby has red fur when born but as it matures its fur gets darker and it loses some fur, becomes larger
- no appearance change during different seasons
- no other changes
-expressions for different passions of the soul
-gets bored just as humans
- when they see a dead elephant along the way they stay silent for a while and I guess they feel sad

Body Divisions
-has muscles of nose, upper lip
and cheeks, has no bone but some
cartilage in the nostrils and at the base of the trunk
-Function: feeding,watering,dusting, smelling, touching, communicating and defense
-can hold 10 liters of water
Tusks
- for digging roots, water and stripping bark from trees
-also used for fighting and defense
Eyes
- moderate eye vision but not used that much for anything
-located on the side so it has peripheral vision
Ears
-use to funnel in sound waves from the environment from miles away
-very good hearing
Nose
-detects water source from up to 12 miles away and its in constant use
- also useful
Trunk
-for supporting the great weight of the animal
Anterior/Posterior
-front is a gray face with a long trunk sticking out and eyes on the sides and tall legs
-back has a shortish tail and short legs
-lots of people confuse the asian with the african elephant but there is a difference
African Elephant
- southern, eastern and south-eastern parts of Asia
-live in tropical forests
-the environment contributes to them by giving them their survival needs like water and food
-an adult eats between 149 to 169 kg of vegetation daily, 16 to 18 hrs. or about 80% of the day is spent on food
-eat grass, small plants, bushes, fruit, twigs. tree bark and roots
-dig up the earth to obtain salt and minerals with their tusks
- calves eat small plants or some grass
-require lots of water
