Artist's Description

Asian elephant (Elephas maximus)

Type: Mammal

Habitat: Asian elephants live in habitats ranging from dense tropical forests to grassy plains.

Age: Elephants live for approximately 60 years in the wild and for up to 80 years in captivity.

Asian male elephants (bulls) can weigh up to 4.4 tonnes and the females (cows) up to 4.1 tonnes. Newborn babies are around 125 kg, about the same as three ten-year-old children.

Elephants feature the biggest ears in the world, which have a double function: to hear and to help cooling both the ears and body. These animals also have the longest nose of any animal. It consists of the nose and top lip, and contains over 40,000 muscles. Elephants use their trunk to reach food, suck up water and have a shower, smell, touch, breath, trumpet and as protection.
