The largest living terrestrial animals, male African elephants can reach a height of 4 m (13 ft) and weigh 7,000 kg (15,000 lb).

Their incisors grow into tusks, which serve as tools for moving objects and digging and as weapons for fighting.

The elephant's large ear flaps help to control the temperature of its body.

They are considered to be keystone species due to their impact on their environments.

Other animals tend to keep their distance, and predators such as lions, tigers, hyenas and wild dogs usually target only the young elephants (or "calves").
