Elephants are beautiful animals, but they're endangered. This article will tell you the facts about these brilliant beasts. (Written by Chetan Vora)


Did you know that there are 40,000 muscles in only the elephant's trunk? Read on to learn more about the elephant’s habitat, diet, and trunk.


Elephants are found most often in savannas, grasslands, and forests, but they occupy a wide range of habitats, including deserts, swamps, and highlands in tropical and subtropical regions of Africa and Asia.


Elephants eat roots, grasses, fruit, and bark, and they eat a lot of these things. An adult elephant can consume up to 300 pounds of food in a single day. OMG!!!


The tusks of an elephant are used for defense, offense, digging, lifting objects, gathering food, and stripping bark to eat from trees. They also protect the sensitive trunk, which is tucked between them when the elephant charges. In times of drought, elephants dig water holes in dry riverbeds by using their tusks, feet, and trunks.


In conclusion, we should not kill elephants because there are only 40,000-50,000 left in the wild, which means the species is classified as endangered. And it is critical to conserve both African and Asian elephants since they play such a vital role in their ecosystems as well as contributing towards tourism and community incomes in many areas.
