· I live on the continent of Africa and in the country of India.
· I live on plains and deserts and in tropical rain forests and river valleys.
· I'm too big to have a house. I rarely lie down and usually sleep standing up.
· I have a large body with wrinkled skin and tusks made out of ivory. I also have a very long nose that I use to smell, make trumpet calls, rip leaves off trees and spray water on myself.
· I am gray, tan or light brown with yellowish-white tusks.
· I am very tall – usually between 10 and 15 feet (between 3 and 4.5 meters)!
· I'm huge! I can weigh between 11,000 and 15,000 pounds (between 5,000 and 7,000 kilograms)!
· I eat as much as 500 pounds (about 225 kilograms) of food each day! And 50 gallons (almost 90 liters) of water! My meals include leaves, grasses and other plants.
· My only real enemies are human hunters who value my ivory tusks. Even though I can't walk very fast, I have few enemies that are wild animals.
· I don't see very well, but my ears and nose make up for it! My famous nose allows me to smell food (or danger!) and lets me talk to my friends.
