adaptations-elephants have large ears so that they can fan themselves of in the hot dry desert.-elephants have a long flexible trunk that allows them to reach into trees and pull up roots and grasses from the ground. With out there trunk they wouldnt be able to find the nearly 1000 pounds of vegetation they consume each day.
