Elephant sounds

This elephant is able to drink 50 gallons of water every day, and can hold about 1.5 gallons in their trunk at one time. The differnece between African elephants and Asian elephtants is that African elephants have large ears, shaped much like the continent of Africa itself. Asian elephants have less to worry about heat-wise, as they tend to live in cool jungle areas, so their ears are smaller.
