There is so much we can learn about them, and yet there are still mysteries about them waiting to be revealed. There may be stories you have heard about elephants. Now the question is, Are those stores fact or fiction? Are they true or false? One bit of information you may have heard is that elephants have a good memory. That is very true! It is so true, that it is believed that elephants have a better memory than humans do. Elephants can remember other elephants that they may not have seen in years. They can also remember being treated unkindly by someone even though many years may have passed. Another story that is often thought about with elephants is, Are they afraid of mice? You might have heard that elephants fear mice because they can run up the elephants trunk. But the answer here is that this story is not true, and there is no proof of any kind to support this. It may not surprise you know that the elephants of today are related to the Ice Age Mammoth. At one time there were over 350 different species of elephants, yet today we have only two species left! Can you name the two species? What you may be surprised to learn is that elephants were not always the large creatures you see today. In fact, in prehistoric times, the elephant was as small as the size of a cow or pig. Would it surprise you to learn that the elephants of today are related to the sea cow known as the Manatee? Did you know that when the elephants flap their ears they do it for a reason? Or do you know what jobs the elephants use their tusks for? An elephants tusk can be smaller on one side than the other. Do you know the reason why? Did you know that a female elephant will spend her whole life in one herd, while the male elephant usually live their lives alone sometime after the age of 14? As you can see, there are many interesting things that can be learned about this tremendous sized animal with the ivory tusks.
