African Elephant

African Elephants are the largest land animal on earth. They are slightly larger than there African cousins. A elephant's ears help to keep the animal cool in hot weather by flapping there ears back and forth. Also African elephants enjoy water they suck up water and spray it on themselves or each other. They can also use there trunks as a snorkel when they go into deeper water. They often spray them selves with a protective coating of dust. The trunk contains over 100,000 mussels! Both male and female have tusks males will use them to fight for a female and the females will use them for protection of there young. they also may use the tusks to dig for food and water and strip bark from trees. Because ivory is so valuable to some humans, many elephants have been killed for their tusks. This trade is illegal today, but it has not been completely eliminated, and some African elephant populations remain endangered. Elephants eat roots, grasses, fruit, and bark, and they eat a lot of these things. An adult elephant can consume up to 300 pounds of food per day. These large animals do not sleep much they have to keep eating to sustain their massive bodies. Female elephants (cows) live in family herds with their young, but adult males (bulls) tend to roam on their own. Having a baby elephant is a serious commitment. Elephants have a longer pregnancy than any other mammal almost 22 months! At birth, elephants already weigh some 200 pounds and stand 3ft tall. African elephants, unlike their Asian relatives, are not easily domesticated. But can be trained and are mainly kept in zoos. Very few zoos have African elephants because its quite hard to capture them out from the wild unless they are injured or born in captivity.

Emperor penguins

Emperor penguins are the largest know species of penguin standing 4ft tall. During breeding season a penguin will sing to find its mate. Then the female will pass the egg to the male. Then the female will leave for about month and go fishing. While the females are gone the males huddle together to stay warm and as a male gets warm it moves tord the perimeter so another can enjoy the warmth. When the females come home they find there mates and new born chicks. The females will regurgitate food to feed the chicks. The chicks have gray feathers witch will shed as they grow then will turn into a black, white, and yellow coat. Once the chicks have fully grown they take there first swim and learn to catch fish. They live a life span of 15-20 years and live in large groups. There predators are Leopard seals and humans they are not mammals but came from the bird family.

Dolphins are very intelligent creatures marine biologists think they could be smarter than primates! they can learn tricks very easily, and communicate using a variety of clicks and whistles. Dolphins are mammals but do live in water they come up to breath through a blowhole on the top of its head. Also dolphins can not sleep or else they would drown. So they let half of there brain fall asleep and sleep about 8 hours a day. Dolphins can sleep 3 different ways swimming very slowly and coming up to breath now and again. Resting at the surface with there blowhole exposed, or resting on the bottom of shallow waters and coming up to breath every once in a while. There are 32 species of oceanic dolphins and about 5 river species. An average bottlenose dolphin can live between 40-50 years. Most dolphins can dive up to 300 meters (990 ft) and stay under for around 2 minutes but can be trained to stay under for 7 min. Dolphins can grow to around 3ft long and eat 50 lb of food per day.
