ANIMAL FACTS - Elephants

An elephants dexterous trunk and large molars enable them to gather and process up to 5-10% of its body weigh in of vegetation per day, including grasses, leaves, fruit, farm crops and bark.

Crikey - More Animal Facts!

Elephant's trunks are extremely unique, giving them the ability to reach the ground; manipulate very small objects or tear down huge tree limbs; squirt water over their backs or into their mouths; or blow dirt onto their backs during dust baths. Their wide padded feet enable them to walk quietly. We expect our beautiful Sumatran elephants to be adventuring in their world-class Elephantasia by Easter 2020, complete with a huge swimming pool, fountain, plethora of plants, trees and grassland.
