Default The Largest Land Living Mammals invaded the September 22nd Chat Thread


The International Elephant Appreciation Day is an annual event which takes place on September 22nd. Little kids and big kids are fascinated by elephants. In a zoo, in the circus, or a wildlife special on television, elephants captivate us by their sheer size. Here are some facts about elephants:

~ Elephants are the largest land-living mammal in the world.
~ There are two types of elephant, the Asian elephant and the African elephant (although sometimes the African Elephant is split into two species, the African Forest Elephant and the African Bush Elephant).
~ An elephant can use its tusks to dig for ground water. An adult elephant needs to drink around 210 litres of water a day.
~ Elephants have large, thin ears. Their ears are made up of a complex network of blood vessels which with regulating an elephants temperature. Blood is circulated through their ears to cool them down in hot climates. Despite the size of ears the elephant’s hearing is poor.
~ Elephants have no natural predators. However, lions will sometimes prey on young or weak elephants in the wild. The main risk to elephants is from humans through poaching and changes to their habitat.
~ An elephant’s trunk can grow to be about 2 metres long and can weigh up to 140 kg. Some scientists believe that an elephant’s trunk is made up of 100,000 muscles, but no bones.
~ Female elephants spend their entire lives living in large groups called herds. Male elephant leave their herds at about 13 years old and live fairly solitary lives from this point.
~ Elephants can swim – they use their trunk to breathe like a snorkel in deep water
~ Elephants are herbivores and can spend up to 16 hours days collecting leaves, twigs, bamboo and roots. They consume as much as 495 pounds of food per day!
~ One of the softest parts of their body is at the back of the ears, which is called the knuckle. Elephant trainers, called Mahouts, use their feet to steer or give commands to the animal via the knuckle at the back of the ears.
~ Elephants can live for up to 70 years and normally walk about 4mph.
~Their tusks are of ivory and are actually enormously enlarged incisors.

Have a wonderful Thursday!

Making Easy Mac, watching videos, checking on any new JD3 info and commenting on this DCT before going to bed.

I think most people went to bed.
