Elephants are very intelligent they are colossal animals that are grey.Elephants are large mammals. They live in African and Asian. Their scientific name: Elephantidae. They have lifespan of around 80 years.They weigh on average 5,500 kg.They are surviving relatives of the now extinct mammoths and mastodons. All elephants have several distinctive features the most notable of which is a long trunk used for many purposes, particularly for grasping objects. In addition to their trunks, their incisors grow into tusks, which serve as tools for moving objects and digging and as weapons for fighting. The elephant's large ear flaps help to control the temperature of its body. African elephants have larger ears and concave backs while Asian elephants have smaller ears and convex or level backs.
Elephants are herbivorous and can be found in different habitats including savannahs, forests, deserts and marshes. They prefer to stay near water. They are considered to be keystone species due to their impact on their environments. Females ("cows") tend to live in family groups, which can consist of one female with her calves or several related females with offspring.
