Elephants of Africa

Elephants of Africa by Gail Gibbons


African elephants are the largest living land animals.

Male elephants can grow to be thirteen feet tall, weigh as much as seven tons, and live to be more than sixty years old.

Female elephants raise their young in family groups that are led by a matriarch, usually the eldest and most experienced female.

Here is information about the trunks, tusks, skin, ears, eyes, and teeth of these magnificent creatures.

How African elephants are threatened is explained, as well as what is being done to help protect them.
