Elephants - African Lion Safari

Did you know that elephant's trunk is a highly sensitive organ with over 100,000 muscle units?

Elephants are the largest land animals. They typically live for 50 to 70 years, but the oldest recorded elephant lived for 82 years. At birth it is common for an elephant calf to weigh 120 kilograms (260 lb).

In nature elephants live in herds, with a number of them always keeping together, just like a herd of cows. Elephants don't live in one place, like many other smaller animals, because they eat a lot, so they have to keep moving from place to place in order to get more food.

They will eat all there is in one part of the jungle, and then travel many miles to a new place, not coming back to the first one until there are more green leaves, fresh grass, or new bark on the trees which they have partly stripped before.
