Today we Celebrate the Elephant

Elephants. I have always found them amazing. When I found out that today is World Elephant Day (Aug 12) I thought it was a great chance for us to learn a little more about them!

1. THEY’RE THE WORLD’S LARGEST LAND ANIMAL

2. YOU CAN TELL THE TWO SPECIES APART BY THEIR EARS

3. THEIR TRUNKS HAVE MAD SKILLS- Elephants have around 150,000 muscle units in their trunk.

4. THEIR TUSKS ARE ACTUALLY TEETH

5. THEY’VE GOT THICK SKIN- An elephant’s skin is 2.5cm thick in most places.
