Amboseli is famous for its huge number of elephants. The African elephant is the largest living land animal and weighs up to 5,400 kg. Besides its greater size, it differs from the Asian elephant in having larger ears and tusks, a sloping forehead, and two ?fingers? at the tip of its trunk, compared to only one in the Asian elephants trunk.
Elephants are vegetarians and consume more than 225 kg plants a day, to achieve that amount they are eating for about 18 hours a day. Elephants live inherds of females and yongsters. The older males are solitairy.
