Elephants are one of the largest animals on Earth and they have strong noses called trunks.
- 1 Whoa, it's an elephant.
- 2I think it's a baby elephant.
- 3You know what we should do? Let's take a photo and send it to my sister, Katie.
- 4She is also a junior ranger.
- 5Hold still young one.
- 6Hi Katie, so did you find anything about the baby elephant?
- 7Hi Leo, the elephant you found is an Asian elephant.
- 8The largest land animal in Asia.
- 9Though they are smaller than the African elephant.
- 10Asian elephants can grow up to three meters tall.
- 11Wow, that's so big.
- 12Elephants have long noses called trunks.
- 13They use their trunks like we use our hands.
- 14With their trunks they can greet each other like a handshake...
- 15...and pick up objects as heavy as a tree.
- 16As heavy as a tree?
- 17Wow, elephant trunks sure are strong.
- 18Earlier we saw the baby elephant grab some grass with its trunk.
- 19That's because they need to eat a lot of food.
- 20They eat all kinds of grasses, small plants, bushes, fruit, twigs, tree bark, and roots.
- 21Where do Asian elephants live?
- 22The Asian elephant can be found in lowland forests...
- 23...and grasslands of India, China and Southeast Asia.
- 24Baby elephant must be hungry.
- 25We should bring it back to its mother.
- 26Come and join us.
