This is a guest post for a school project. We hope you enjoy Ellie’s presentation on Asian elephants!

Key Points

  • Asian elephants are smaller than their African cousins.
  • They live in verdant forests which are cooler than the hotter habitats of their distant relatives and have smaller ears as a result.
  • They are herbivores and only feed on plant matter.

There are elephants in both Asia and Africa, which are continents. For my presentation I selected Asian elephants, which are smaller than African elephants. Here is a picture of my post on elephants!

My Asian Elephant Video

I went to the zoo to see Asian elephants in person. They’re so big! In the video below, you can hear me discuss what they eat, their habitat, and how to protect them!

Asian Elephants are Endangered!

Asian elephants are endangered. This means they face the threat of extinction if people don’t do more to help them. Elephants are losing their habitats, to save the species we must protect the forests they live in!

Thank you for reading my presentation and watching my video!
