African elephant is the largest land animal with height up to 3.3 meters and weight up to 6,000 kg (consumes about 150 kg of grass per day). It uses its trunk to suck up and release water into its mouth as well as to spray it on its body to cool it. Dust-bathing after a swim helps to protect its skin from sunburn.
