Elephant is considered to be the largest animal in the world.They have four legs,two big ears,a long tail and a long trunk.The long teeth of an elephant is called the Tusk.The trunk is used to breathe, suck water,to lift things etc.Elephants are herbivores and they prefer to stay in forests but humans capture them from forests and use them in circus,wood mills to lift heavy wood etc.Generally they are gentle in nature.In many of our temples they are used for religious ceremonies also.Elephants have high intelligence and high memory power.In forest they travel in groups under the leadership of a leader usually the oldest one.The group will include elder elephants,baby elephants etc.The elder one always try to protect their younger ones from any other enemies.An Elephant can live for more than sixty years.Nowadays the number of elephants are reducing because they are hunted by humans for their tusks which is very expensive in international trade.If proper rules and strict action is not taken against this,elephants would soon fall under the endangered species category.
