They have no natural animal predators making them for us big friendly giants. Elephants are herbivores meaning they only eat grass, shurbs and vegetables but no meat. In fact, to meet their apetite they need to spend 16 hours a day eating. As well grass elephants also need to drink up to 40 gallons of water everyday. Unlike humans they only need to sleep for about 2 hours per day. Water also has other attractions to elephants: they like to swim. Like humans they can live for a very long time - longer than many other animals. They can live for up to 60-70 years.
Share your love of elephants with a gift for your children.
