Asian Elephant

Elephas maximus

Elephants are the largest land mammal in the world. They can weigh as much as two vans filled with people. With thousands of muscles and tendons, elephants’ trunks are incredibly strong and flexible! They can carry heavy loads, like logs, or pick-up a single flower. Trunks also help them reach areas where their large bodies cannot fit.
