The elefant (drawing)

The elephant (Elephantidae) is a protected species and is one of the largest land mammals and belong to the 'trunk animals'. They mostly eat leaves. Their trunk is a handy agile body to grab something from the ground to pick up or to tear of the leaves of trees.
They live mainly in groups with a male elephant. They act as a group to protect the small calves. The male elephants (bull) have large fangs to compete with another male elephant during the mating season.
There are 2 large elephants sorts: the African Elephant and the Indian Elephant. The African elephant is the largest of the two and can weigh up to 5 tons with a height of 3 meters.
The African elephant has not many enemies except the humans because of illegal trade in ivory but also lions in group hunting on elephants.
