Elephant ( Loxodonta Africana )
African Elephants are the world's largest land animals, weighing up to (6.6 tons). They are one of the most unique-looking animals, too. With their characteristic long noses, or trunks; large, floppy ears; and wide, thick legs, there is no other animal with a similar physique. The African Elephant is an intelligent, sociable and familial animal, and despite the threat it attracts due to its Ivory, the great news is that numbers are up in Kenya over the last couple of years. They are found in large numbers in Amboseli and Masai Mara among other parks and reserves in Kenya. Read more about the African Elephant here.
