All about Elephants

Elephants are the world’s largest living land animals, known for their massive size, large, fan-shaped ears and elongated trunks.  Their tusks are two large incisor teeth that extend towards the ground and are used for digging, uprooting trees, dominance displays, and defense.  Female elephants often live in herds, led by a matriarch. Elephants are a keystone species, vital for the survival of other organisms in the ecosystem, making their conservation an important and complex issue.
