Elephants: The Largest Land Animals on Earth

Did you know?

Imagine this!
Elephants have a lengthy lifespan, living between 60 to 70 years. These colossal herbivores dine on foliage, sustaining their large bodies. African elephants can grow up to 7.3 meters in length and tip the scales at up to 7,000 kilograms​​.

Fun fact!
Elephants share a family tree with the woolly mammoths from our prehistoric past. These ancient animals were part of the same family that today’s elephants belong to. The scientific name for the African Elephant is Loxodonta africana, and for the Asian Elephant, it’s Elephas maximus​.
