Save The Elephants

Did You Know:

Elephants are among the most intelligent creatures on the planet and have complex emotions.

Elephants are the largest existing land animals.

Elephants have around 150,000 muscle units in their trunk.

Asian elephants can pick up a peanut, shell it, blow the shell out and eat the nut.

They are constantly eating – they need to eat up to 330 lbs of food per day.

They communicate through vibrations – through seismic signals – sounds that create vibrations in the ground – which they may detect through their bones. They also communicate through sounds like trumpet calls (some sounds are too low for people to hear), body language, touch and scent.

A baby elephant can stand within 20 minutes of birth – and can walk within 1 hour. After two days, they can keep up with the herd.

Elephants never forget – temporal lobe (the area of the brain associated with memory) is larger and denser than that of people.

Around 90% of African elephants have been wiped out in the past century – largely due to the ivory trade and Asian elephants’ population down by at least 50% in the last three generations with only around 45,000 left in the wild.
