Though they are the largest land mammals on Earth, elephants are also some of the most unique. Their sheer size, ears, trunk and tusk make them like no other animal in the world. Historically, they have occupied large areas of Asia and Africa, but in recent decades they have become more scarce as their numbers have begun to dwindle. Aside from being hunted by ivory poachers, habitat destruction has made it harder for various species of elephant to thrive in the wild. Thankfully, many governments and non-profits are banding together to help preserve this magnificent animal.
One of the most unique characteristics of elephants is the trademark sound it makes. As soon as that piercing wail is heard, Fred the bulldog knows exactly what to do next.
