Hi I am a Sumatran elephant or elephas maximus sumatranus. Mostly I live in island of Sumatra Indonesia. ▪ SUMATRAN ELEPHANT ▪
weight : 3000 - 5000 kg size: height 1.9 - 2.7 m
Sumatran elephants can consume up to 150 kg of food and drink 200 liters of water every day.
Sumatran elephants are very social animals. They use infrasonic sounds to communicate with each other. Sumatran elephants roam around the jungle pushing over trees.
Elephants are very protective of their young. When they are being attacked by predators, the older elephants surround their young in the middle of a circle with the bulls on the outside.
When the weather is hot, the elephant will get into the water. Or their trunk will pour the soil onto his back to reduce the heat on the body and skin.▶▶
In 2012, the Sumatran elephant was changed from “Endangered” to “Critically Endangered” because half of its population has been lost in one....▶
... generation—a decline that is largely due to habitat loss and as a result human-elephant conflict.
So let's we all ▪Save animals▪ ▪Save Humanity▪ Earth was created for all life, not just human life.
The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated ▪Mahatma Gandhi▪ □□□ Save the elephants,and then you save the forest and then you save yourself ▪Mark Shand▪
A nation that destroys its soils destroys itself. Forests are the lungs of our land, purifying the air and giving fresh strength to our people.
