Giants of the Land
African elephants are the largest land animals. Their ears are used like fans. Their feet are soft, so the huge animals can walk almost silently. Their long trunks are used for breathing, smelling, bathing, and picking up food. Elephants also use their trunks to make a loud trumpeting noise to scare away enemies --lions and people who hunt elephants for their ivory tusks.
What's for dinner?
Elephants eat grasses, fruit, bark, leaves and twigs.
