Full Answer

Elephants are large four-legged land mammals that live in Africa and Asia. Elephants have large bulky bodies with large ears and a long trunk on their heads. Elephants use their prominent trunks to suck up water and then spray it into their mouths. Elephants also use their trunks for lifting food and other objects. Elephants have thick grey skin, which they often cover in dirt and mud to protect them from the blistering heat. Elephants are herbivores, and a single elephant is capable of eating over 800 pounds of food a day.
