Powerful, majestic, and intelligent are the words to describe the largest, endangered land mammals on the planet. The remaining 3 species of elephant exist only in Asia and Africa. Elephants may live up to 70 years or more, weigh up to several tons, and are vivacious herbivores. The trunk contains over 100,000 muscles, has a high sense of smell, and is used in a variety of ways similar to the way humans use their hands, including to forage for food, and to ward of intruders. The tusks made of ivory, are the elephantís 2nd upper incisors that continue to grow and wear during the animalís lifetime. Female elephants stay together in a herd of related females. The group is led by the oldest female (cow). This group will interact with other elephant groups, locate food sources, raise calves together, and protect their group from unfamiliar elephants or predators. Male elephants are pushed out of his motherís group around the age of 14, form bonds with other males, and usually live a solitary existence. Elephants can communicate over long distances with use of low frequency infrasound (rumbling), which is not audible to human ears.
