The Elephant Africa – Asia
The elephant is quite a strange animal which has two dreadful tusks and a large trunk. The cow elephant has one baby every four years –which heights one meter and weights 100 kg –which makes of him a big baby elephant!
One hour after his birth, the baby elephant can already walk. His mother guides his first steps with her trunk because his legs are still shaky.
Even though they never look after their “kids”, the male elephants pay attention to the young they meet. They gather armfuls of grass or break a few branches.
The baby elephants remain close to their mother.
At about 11 years old, the male baby elephants leave the herd where they grew up. They then join other males.
