Did you know? There are three types of elephants!
Elephants are the largest land animals in the world! Savanna elephants are the largest of the three species: large adult males can weigh over 14,000 pounds (6,350 kg).
Elephants are herbivores (plant-eaters) and they need to eat lots of food! Elephants eat grass, leaves, fruit, seed pods, bark, and roots. They can eat 330 – 660 pounds (150 – 300 kg) of food per day. They also need to drink lots of water to stay hydrated.
