Elephants are one of the most marvelous creatures walking on our planet. They are the largest land animals on Earth. You can easily recognize them by their characteristic long noses or trunks, large and floppy ears, and wide, thick legs.

There are two species of elephants. The first one is the Asian elephant, and the second is the African elephant. They live on separate continents and have unique features to their species.

One of the many myths about elephants is that they love peanuts and eat them all the time. They definitely do not eat peanuts in the wild. Peanuts are not eve typical diet for captive animals either.

As the world’s largest land animal, adult elephants eat approximately 300-400lbs of food per day. Their diet largely consists of grass, leaves, bamboo, bark, roots, ad crops like banana and sugarcane.

Elephants spent most of the day eating. In fact, they spend between 16 and 18 hours per day eating.

This documentary ventures deep into the wildlife and explores elephants in their natural habitat.
