Transcript of ELephents
Female elephants are called cows. They start to have calves when they are about 12 years old and they are pregnant for 22 months.
Female elephants spend their entire lives living in large groups called herds. Male elephants leave their herds at about 13 years old and live fairly solitary lives from this point.
Elephants live for approximately 70 years.
Elephants sleep standing up.
Only one mammal can’t jump — the elephant.
Elephants prefer one tusk over the other, just as people are either left or right-handed.
One elephant can eat 136 kilograms of food in one day.
Because elephants spend so much time in the sun they need sunblock.
But of course elephants dont use the same sunblock as us humans do, instead they use either mud or dirt.
Elephants are the biggest land animals on Earth.
African elephants are larger than Asian elephants and have bigger ears, which they use for cooling their massive bodies.
Both female and male African elephants have tusks but only the male Asian elephants have tusks.
What elephants look like
