Observe a herd of African elephants in their natural habitat and discover the many amazing facts about them, from trunk to tail.
Elephants are the largest land animals alive today. Intelligent and social, they are amazing creatures that live all across Africa. While they are not endangered right now, they are still vulnerable to environmental and human threat, and it is important that we learn all there is to protect in these loveable mammals.
